    I thought this was pretty amazing and hadn't heard about it before. For those of you who love corn on the cob, itís an absolute must-see! No mess to preparing it and no silks to try to brush off of the corn (it comes out perfectly clean).

    I hope the video works for you.

    so is the corn "cooked" at that point or does it still need to be prepared??

    I feel like this is a stupid question, so pardon if it is.

    Wow, love corn on the cob, can't wait to try this. Thanks for posting the link.

    He says it's ready to eat after cooking in the microwave.

    I usually like to wash the corn after I shuck it to get any bugs or anything hiding in there... oh well, just extra protein I guess!

    No not a stupid question because I was wondering the same thing myself. Is the corn cooked or does it still need to be cooked? Neat way to get rid of the silk though.

    He says when it comes out it's ready to eat, so I'm assuming it is cooked.

    I think it is already cooked as its being cooked for 8 minutes in the microwave. I already have shucked corn in my freezer maybe when we go to town if I remember I will grab a couple ears.

    I have always cut my corn like that and pulled off the husks but never have I cooked them in the microwave like he did.

    How long do you think corn needs to cook?

    My parrot loves corn on the cob and I hate shucking it. I will definitely try this even though Pooperbird will not be very patient waiting for the corn to cool! Thanks for sharing.

    That would work for hubby & me but don't think I could feed the whole family if they all showed up for dinner. I know they wouldn't want to eat in shifts. :)

    He cooked 2 ears for 8 minutes, he said 4 minutes per ear. Did y'all listen to the video?

    I've been putting shucked corn in the microwave wrapped in waxed paper for about 4 min. It comes out perfectly crisp and ready to eat. No need for boiling water. I don't know how you'd do it for more people than 2 but it works for us. I'll have to try this next summer if I can remember it by then. Looks like a good idea.

    When it comes out of the microwave, it is cooked.

    for bugs, you can cut them off and the chewed parts after it's cooked. Same with bad spots.

    I microwave corn in the husks (but not for 4 minutes an ear) and then wrap it in a kitchen towel for 5 minutes or so afterward.

    We always rinse the ears after shucking to help cool them down, so we can remove any bad spots or buggy spots then. I have not yet tried this method of shucking though. I saw it last week but I don't know if anyone is still selling corn in the husks around here.
