Special Equipment Needed

How to Remove Corn Kernels from Cob

To remove kernels from an uncooked cob, hold cob firmly at an angle. Carefully cut down the ear (away from the body) with sharp knife, several rows at a time. (Four medium ears will yield about 2 cups kernels.)

Serving Suggestion

Serve with mixed green salad with your favorite KRAFT Dressing.

Special Extra

Top with chopped fresh tomatoes and basil leaves.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Incomplete Recipe This recipe is incomplete and I can't find an email address to ask questions about recipes. It doesn't say whether or not to use oil or what kind of oil in the frying pan when cooking the ham, red bell pepper, and corn. It also doesn't say what temperature to reduce the corn to after getting it to a boil. Please remember to include all steps for those people who are learning to cook.
