Shuck the corn, pass it off to your helper who has the air compressor nozzle in hand, and simply blow the silks away. I timed my son this weekend, and the longest it took was 45 seconds. The ears came to me clean as a whistle!

Here is a link to the best way I have seen to cook and de-silk corn cobs.

Luckily a lot of stores and farmers' markets around where I live have boxes, etc. near the corn which allows you to shuck and de-silk the corn right there, leaving the mess at the store!

That would be good if I had an air compressor, not many households have them.
