Whether you live in an RV like we do, or in a regular house, corn on the cob is a great summer treat. And using your microwave oven is a great way to prepare it. We saw this trick online and thought we’d give it a try ourselves.
Leave the corn right in the husk… no need to shuck it. You only need to trim the end off if the ears are too big to fit in the microwave. Each ear takes four minutes on high power, so we set our microwave to 12 minutes for 3 ears. When they’re done cooking they’ll be steaming hot, so be sure to use oven mitts to avoid getting burned.
Using a sharp knife cut off the large end of the ear. Even though you’ll lose a row or two of kernels, you want to cut above the point where the stalk connects to the cob. Then grab the husk at the small end and squeeze the ear of corn out the other side.
This technique works like a charm and will leave your corn perfectly cooked and virtually silk free every time!
