Sour Cream Corn with Chives  is my recipe of the day. It utilizes fresh corn which is  cut off the cob and  then simmered  in  a sour cream and butter sauce.

I suppose  you could use frozen corn when the fresh corn goes out  of  season in a  month  or two.

Easy Method to  Cut Corn off  Cobs

Did you realize you  can use your Bundt pan to help cut fresh corn off the  cob? Stick the smallest  end into the central hole in the pan. It both steadies and stands up  the corn cob while you slice. (You  notice  nobody has to hold that  corn up in the pic, right?)

Plus  it catches all the corn as it falls away. Makes quick work of it,  let  me tell you.

So if  you  are not doing  this brilliant trick already,  be   sure to give it a try.

Easy Method to Cut Corn off Cobs

This  is  very much  like  a cream  corn recipe,  although it  is slightly  less  sweet than cream  corn. And has a little more tang from the sour cream.

I  prefer it this way, but you can  always add a pinch  of sugar to  make it to  your  own taste prefs.

For  extra creamy corn, don’t forget to scrape a  butter  knife down the sides of the cob. This  will get every  last bit of the corn and juices.

From  there, it  is easy  work on the stove.
