Useful (or Useless) Kitchen Gadgets
« on: June 14, 2023, 10:29:00 PM »
Tired of removing corn silk the old way? Try doing it the NEW way! I can't remember where I saw this, but it's an actual product that's for sale online. I think it was at a place that sells Amish-style pushbikes. They're lightweight aluminum, by the way. Pretty cool if you want a low CG with your foot 2-3" from the ground, and to push, not pedal. If anything goes wrong you can simply step off to bail out, unlike a regular bike. I bookmarked the site but my carpal tunnel has been begging me to get offline, so I'm not checking to see if the corn silk remover is on there. Please post useful OR silly kitchen gadgets most of us may not have seen. I don't know if this is, "As Seen On TV", because I don't watch infomercials. Regular commercials either, for that matter.

I like to cook my corn on the cob in the microwave, an ear at a time, with everything still intact. When it's done I cut it off near the bottom of the ear and pull all the leaves with the silk off one way, with a few rows of corn still on the stub of the cob on the stem the other way. I don't let that last bit of corn go to waste either. The leaves seal in the moisture like plastic wrap, but without all the toxic chemicals. Kind of like cooking in banana leaves but way easier to source. ;)
