  1. Shuck the corn and remove the silk. Rinse with cold water.
  2. Cut the kernels off the cob and into a large bowl. It’s best to do this while the corn is standing up and run a sharp knife down the side of the cob.
  3. Use a spoon to scrape the naked cobs and remove the starchy milky liquid, called corn milk straight into the bowl with the corn. Season the corn with salt and pepper and mix everything together.
