  1. Wow I just signed up and Kelly I am so impressed with your Web page and the corn trick is awesome thank-you

  2. Wat a timesaver!! Thank you so much for the super tip. Can’t wait to try it. Will surely pass on your technique to my family and friends

      1. I love corn but having stomach issues. I’m going home from UVA hospital in a couple days and think I’ll puree the corn and make the corn fitters. Think this will work as well as using the kernels?

      2. Hi Janet! The consistency of the batter will be much thinner so you’ll need to adjust the liquids.

  3. I have a question about microwaving the corn. Do you soak in water first and roughly for how long? I noticed a wet area when you lifted corn off of board, so am guessing that’s from added water / soaking.

    Great idea & I especially love how to cut corn off using a Bundt pan ~ Easy Peasy!

    Thank you????
