Here was my “shucking” area! I just laid a plastic tablecloth on the floor. I had planned to shuck it there, but they didn’t have any bins out for the waste.
Then I put them into cold water for 7 minutes. You put them in the cold water as long as they are in the boiling water. By this time my ice had melted. Because the ears were SO fresh the silk mostly came off in the water when boiled/cooled!
Here are my pretties, waiting to be cut off the cob! Only one bad ear out of the 5 dozen!
