Different strokes for different folks? I've always shucked my corn first and it never tasted like "piss".

I have never seen that happen before, ever.

I guess i have never seen anyone doing that. That being said I have never heard of shucking it last minute and often do so 30 minutes before hand, and it tastes perfectly fine. So does the pre-shucked corn that I buy from the produce department.

We were always told to shuck our corn to make sure there weren't worms in it. I guess the only time I've ever seen someone leave the husk on while they were cooking it is when people grill it.

We always shuck ours. Mostly because we grill it.

I have never seen that but they probably just don't want the bugs in corn, or the mess at home.

I usually shuck my corn when I first put the water on the stove to boil.



And I guess I'm a weirdo at the grocery store...I don't shuck it there, but I do open up the top to make sure it looks like a good piece of corn, lol.

I have always shucked my corn before cooking it. It's never dry.

We shuck ours at the grocery store, because it's messy, and we'd rather not the extra mess.

We used to live in the middle of like 5 corn fields growing up. We would be eating corn year round. We always shucked it way before it ever went into the water and it never tasted like "piss".

I didn't see it until I moved here.



@thread I didn't mean it literally tastes like piss. I meant it tastes worse in general. But I've never tasted it shucked that long beforehand so idk.

I shuck my corn unless I'm putting if on the grill. Then I leave it on until its cooked. As of right now I refuse to buy corn, but I guess to each his own. Hasn't ever tasted like piss though IMO

I guess looking for worms makes sense. Idk. I just see it the same as like peeling onions or garlic at the store, or bananas. Or chopping a melon in half. Etc.

I always cook mine in the husk. It's much easier to shuck that way. Plus yummier.
