    Corn on the Cob

    Put unshucked corn on a paper towel in the microwave - 4 minutes per cob. After taking them out, cut off about 2 " of the bottom, hold the top (silky end) and give a few shakes - no silk!

    There was a YouTube about this a few weeks ago. We do it regularly now, and it works!! But be careful, as that corn is really hot when it comes out of the microwave. Our corn has been small this year due to lack of rain...

    This works really well. I love it as I am alone and now can just pop an ear of corn in the micro and in 4 min it's done. No water to boil. It stays hot a long time also.

    If you hate shucking ears of corn and ending up with all the stringy silks to pick off, try this. It is absolutely unbelievable and yet so simple. I wonder what took the world so long to figure this out.

    Corn on the Cob

    The absolute best corn on the cob I ever was at a Mexican restuarant in Lewes, DE. They pulled back the husks and braided them. (May have been steamed in the micro first owing the braids held.) It was roasted on the grill and presented with a chipotle dressing and Mexican cheese. Cannot remember the name of the restaurant, but their food is outstanding.

    Yes, microwaved sweet corn is the best. I cook mine 2 minutes then turn it over and do another 2 minutes.
    Sure beats the water in the kettle method like my Mom used to do .
    What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.

    I do this and cut off the large end put on an oven mitt and just squeeze the corn from the silk end and it comes right off. I found this easier than shaking it and no burnt hands.

    Yes it is 4 min. per ear so if you cook 4 ears it would be 16 min. It works perfect every time
    just watch the U Tube Video here that was above ..
