The Easiest Way to Cook Corn on the Cob

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

It's summertime, and that means plenty of corn on the cob for your dinner table, picnics, and barbecues.  And for years, that also meant shucking and cleaning the corn before boiling a big pot of water to cook it.  But those days are long gone in this household.  I have discovered the joy (and ease) of microwaving corn on the cob and haven't looked back since.  

Here's how it's done. 

  • Put your corn directly into the microwave, in it's husk.  There is no need for a special microwave dish either.  Just plunk it in there. 
  • Next, set your microwave timer to 4 minutes per ear of corn.  So 4 minutes for one ear, 8 minutes for 2, 12 minutes for 3, and so on. 
  • When your corn is done, it will be hot, so use an oven mitt to remove it from the microwave. 
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the stalk end off. 
  • The husk will peel right away, and your corn will be perfectly done!
