Quick tip: How to use efficiently a corn?

Today’s tip is all about corn – one of the most common ingredients in cooking, which has a light, sweet flavor and adapts to many kinds of dishes (corn puree for main dishes, corn kernels for salad or appetizers…) Enjoy ^^

After cutting corn off the cob, use the back side of a knife (not the blade side) to scrape the cob again to extract the sweet milk left behind. This milk adds flavor and body to any corn dish.

Lay the corn horizontally on a board, then cut off the kernels.

Run the back of your knife over the empty cob to extract the milk.
