Let me repeat that. Fresh, steamed, hot corn on the cob, ready to eat, with no, that’s ZERO husking at all, 4 minutes per ear, and you do not have to deal with those pesky silks that are impossible to get off! You will have a clean cob with no work, and no silks. Okay… you might find like one single stray silk that stuck to the cob, but that will be about it. Seriously.
Cook fresh corn on the cob in microwave with husks and silk intact. They will cook in their own natural moisture.
Place on dampened paper towel. Turn ears over and rearrange after 1/2 cooking time.
1 ear – 4 1/2 minutes
2 ears – 5 to 6 minutes
3 ears – 6 to 7 minutes
4 ears – 8 to 9 minutes
6 ears – 8 to 9 minutes.
After it has finished cooking, use heavy oven mitts or some Ove gloves to remove it from the microwave and cut off the larger end of the cob with a sharp serrated knife. Remember this is very hot corn, so use your gloves while handling. Wrap in towel or foils and let set for 4-5 minutes.
Then simply squeeze the cob out of the shucks pushing out at the cut off end
Serve with melted butter and season to taste. This is delicious!
