You will need approximately 3 large corn cobs for 2½ cups fresh corn kernels. Alternatively, use canned or thawed frozen corn kernels. To remove corn kernels, trim one end of the cob so it sits flat on your chopping board. Then use a large sharp knife to cut down the length of the cob, close to the core.
