    I never tried it that way. I only husk the outer dark leaves off then nuke for 3 min- turn it over for 3 more min. When done I peel down the husk and the silk all comes away from the corn and the husk. I twist the husk for a handle -

    After I saw this video, I tried it -- except I cooked it for only 3 mins/ear. And the husk didn't shake off very easily. My experience was more like his 2nd try. Several times I have ended up peeling the husks off Just FYI

    That looks like it would be great. I'm the only one in the house who eats corn on the cob & fish. Thanks.

    The video is cute but I just don't love the flavor of corn cooked in the husk.

    I tried it a couple days ago & it worked great! I don't think I'll ever husk before cooking again.

    i have to try this! A local farmer bring us in huge bags of corn every year. Last year some of my co workers didn't take any and it went bad. I had to bring it home and get rid of it so he wouldn't see it in our trash. I wonder can it be freezed (once i take the corn off the cob)? I told DH i was going to take whatever was left and freeze (another co worker freezes it) rather than seeing it go to waste again!

    I saw this and have been doing it. You don't even have to use the microwave. I soak the ears and put them on the grill, or bake them in the oven, and the ears still come out of the husk clean and silk free. Clean up is soooooo much easier

    After I saw this video this is the only way we eat corn on the cob! It is fast and delicious and those kernals come right off the cob cleanly!

    Wish I'd have known this when our sweet corn was in season. Oh, well...next year!

    Here is an easy recipe for freezer corn, and you don't have to blanch it on the cob beforehand.

    Frozen Sweet corn
    10 cups raw corn, cut off the cob
    1 1/2 cups water
    1/4 lb butter (8 tbsp)
    1 tsp. sugar
    1 tsp. salt

    Combine all ingredients in saucepan; bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.
    Cool. Pour into freezer containers or freezer bags and freeze.

    Enjoy!
