    We use one of those adjustable knife-in-a-frame setups, kind of like an old kraut cutter. You can find them at kitchen stores and at the big box stores. Just be careful of your fingers, and sharpen the knife part regularly. Works great!

    If you want kernals like the ones in boughten whole kernal corn, you can let the corn mature a couple days longer then cut it off the cob. Corn tastes sweeter if it is used before the kernals get that mature. I am talking about it maturing on the stalk. When it is taken off the stalk the ears should be dealt with immediately to preserve the good fresh flavor.
