The steps are to first, create some space by emptying a row of the corn kernels. Next, using your thumb over a row of kernels, push over towards the empty space. Congrats! You’ve just completed the Hokkaido method of removing corn from the cob!
People were understandably amazed and intrigued at the hack. Some said they still preferred to eat straight off the cob, while others had their own special ways of removing the corn. In the end, though, everyone ends up with a delicious corny treat!
