Wash the ears and place into a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil and then remove from the heat after 3 minutes

You will know the ears are cooked when a knife passes through them easily. Remove the ears from the pan. Place between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper and press down with weights - blocks of butter will work well

Once cool, slice into 5cm long by 1/2cm wide strips. Prepare 3 bowls and dust each strip of ear in flour, egg and finally breadcrumbs. Set aside until needed
