Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
