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?
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.
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!
