How do you eat your corn on the cob?
Tonight, as we were having our 4th of July picnic, I noticed my daughter eats completely around the cob before moving to the right. I, on the other hand, eat in a typewriter type fashion, finishing one row before turning and getting started on the next. My 9-year old, prefers it cut off the cob. So, this fun question is just to inquire how others eat theirs!
I eat mine typewriter style too. I put the butter on first with a slice of bread, no messy butter getting all over the place and I can eat the buttered bread afterwards.
I use my incisors to cut off those delectable kernels several rows at a time, left to right, then right to left, then left to ...
Now I've got to go cook an ear of corn. Thanks a lot.
If I'm eating sweet corn in the U.S., I eat it typewriter style. But here in Peru, corn-on-the-cob is more like field corn or hominy and it is usually eaten by pulling off a kernel at a time. Instead of buttering the corn, it's eaten with big hunks of fresh cheese. It's an acquired taste, but we really enjoy eating corn that way now. Still, there's nothing like summer sweet corn!
That's a cute story about your daughter. : )
All the above. Just depends on the mood if we are having a good time we tend to get a little messy with it, but anything formal It's the typewriter style or cut off.
I eat my corn on the cob two ends first,then i go to the middle,Specially Japanese corn.This kind of corn have bigger kernels and a little bit hard.I remember my grandmother she eats her corn taking out the kernels one by one by hands because she doesn't have front teeth.
I eat the sweet corn cob by biting into it or removing the kernels then put them in my mouth to eat.
I am with those that eat it typewriter style. I don't know why, but it seems to be easier to eat and less mess. Of course, having it with a bit of butter is always good, but I love it without most of the time.
One row at time is clearly the best method, with maximum efficiency and minimal mess.
