Tool your corn

(article, Kim Carlson)

Blogs from newspaper writers this week have gotten corny. Earlier in the week it was popcorn from the New York Times; now it's corn strippers from the San Francisco Chronicle. 

What's a corn stripper look like, you ask? It turns out there are lots of different styles, three of which are pictured in the post. And no, it doesn't strip corn of its husks, useful as that may be; it pops the kernels of corn off the ears, so you don't have to wrestle with slicing the kernels off with a knife.

Get yours now before corn season.
