I am definitely among those who prefers corn to be off the cob. I don’t mind getting butter on my cheeks or even burning my fingertips when I can’t find the corn skewers. It’s getting the corn stuck between my teeth. Even as a kid, I hated that feeling. It was a revelation to me when I realized I could actually cut my corn off the cob - as long as I could withstand the taunts from my dining companions.
Do you embrace the inherent mess of corn on the cob, or do you also prefer to cut it off? What are your reasons?
