Corn on the Cob

Rate it!

Corn on the cob season is fast approaching, and, while we can’t even pretend that this is a recipe, we can pass it along as a tip for the next time you want to cook corn on the cob in a hurry. Sure, we hear you saying, “I know how to make corn on the cob, are these people for real, first you shuck it….” If that’s you, read on, because we have a better way.

The easiest way we know to make corn on the cob, comes via a tip from a family member. Basically, microwave the corn, in the husk, for 4 minutes per ear. Then cut off the bottom end and squeeze out the ear. That’s it! Almost no silk remains, the corn is perfectly done, no hassling with the husking. Really, check out the photos.

Slice off about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the microwaved corn ear. Sure, you’ll lose a couple of kernels, but the effort saved is worth it. You’ll want a hot pad for this. Trust us.

Great little tip, isn’t it? Thanks, MAP!
