Not hard at all.
Using this corn remover I made. Like a pitcher pump.
Mount the corn remove to a barrel lid with a small hole, under the angle food pan.
Pull down on the handle. Cob gose in barrel. Corn fall off in the angle food pan. Can then be packaged to freezee or pickled.
Now if you pickle corn on the cob in a wooden container. Take the whole ear after pickled, and use in your wire minnow trap . Don't worry if you see no minnows where you plan on setting your trap. They will come in droves. [ Later
