So when Ina posted a video to her Instagram page demonstrating her favorite way to cut fresh corn without making a mess, people took notice. 👀

The video shows how Garten cleanly cuts corn off the cob — which is typically a messy process. The kernels fly everywhere and it's hard to keep everything contained. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

"When the corn is in season in East Hampton," says Garten, "I love to make corn salad and sautéed corn. But how do you get the kernels off the corn cob without getting them all over your kitchen?"

"I worked out a system," says Garten.

Her hack? Cut the corn on top of a clean dish towel so you can just bundle it all up and transfer the kernels into a bowl when you're done cutting.

"Without the kitchen towel kernels just bounce all over the kitchen," says Garten

While the hack itself is pretty simple, it's rather genius and will save yourself from having to clean up a bunch of kernels that would otherwise fly all over the place.

“Easy corn kernels with no mess," says Garten.

Once you've used this handy trick, you can go ahead and make one of Garten's recipes like her fresh corn salad and put it to use.
