Quick Clips of Culinary Tips
Simple, easy way to prepare corn on the cob for your next summer outing.
Chef Vito’s corn shucking tip was learned years ago from his friend, Lee Bowman of Long Island’s B&B Fish & Clam, currently located in Amityville, NY. They would host clam bake events and fundraisers for 200-2000 people!
1. Cutting off at the bottom stem of the cob first, make cut about half inch up the base, keeping your knife on the cutting board and lifting the corn.
2. Cut off the top of the cob, about half inch down the husk, keeping your knife on the cutting board and lifting the corn. The husk should easily come off with this technique. No more pulling and tugging at the husk.
3. Bring to boil in a large pot: half water, half milk, decent amount of salt, a bit of white pepper, butter. Have enough liquid ratio to cover over the corn.
4. Once boiled, add corn and cover. Bring back to a boil, then shut off heat. Corn will continue to cook. Keep covered until ready to serve.
