A question about a recipe: Buttered Corn And Noodles

6a4037a7 7196 4f8f 86dc 0d4b12c4906f  13643 buttered corn and noodles

I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Buttered Corn And Noodles" from aargersi. It says:

"Cut the corn off of the cob, then milk the cobs as well. Thinly slice the scallions, and chop the herbs."

What does milking the cob mean?

Take the back edge of your knife and scrape it down the cob after cutting the kernals off. You'll get the remaining bits of kernal as well as some "milk."

This is a great tip and should be done with almost every recipe where the corn is taken off the cob...I do it without thinking!
