Many recipes will call for "1 cup of corn kernels" or "the kernels from two ears of corn". That's a fine description if you are using frozen corn or fresh corn respectively, but otherwise, exactly how much corn is on an ear of corn?
To answer the question "How much corn is on an ear" we removed the kernels from 1 medium ear of fresh corn. We found out that 1 medium ear of corn is around 3/4 cup of corn kernels.
So "How much corn is on an ear" is about 3/4 cup of corn kernels.
And "How many ears of corn do you need for 1 cup of corn kernels" is about 1 and quarter ears of corn.
Now that you know how much corn is on an ear we hope this will take away some of the guesswork when trying to substitute fresh and frozen corn in your favorite recipes.
