In My Life, I've Loved Them All

Stupidly Easy Corn-on-the-Cob

Corn on the Cob on sale, 6 for $1! Just in time for 4th of July barbeque merriment.
And ever since I saw this YouTube clip for cooking the cobs in the microwave (husks and all), I knew I just had to try it out. Could cooking and shucking an ear of corn really be THAT easy?
The answer:
YES!
Not big pot of water to boil (and heat up the kitchen). No 30 min on the grill or in the oven. And virtually no silks!
I microwaved 3 at a time. For some reason my brother had a lot easier time just shaking the cobs out of the husk than I did. But it was not frustrating at all! They will pull out of the husks fairly easy.

Recap:
Microwave on High for 8 minutes.
Cut off the stem end (about 1”)
Hold by top of the husks and shake
The cob falls right out (or with a little pulling help)
Brush with melted butter and season to taste.

My family couldn’t be happier with this new corn trick!
