You're right! More powerful microwaves can use shorter cooking times. But the time ALSO is dependent on the size of the ears of corn. We had some BIG ears a few nights ago, and at 4 minutes in our microwave (1500 Watt), they were perfect. Then last night, we had some smaller ears. We cooked them for the same 4 minutes per ear without thinking... and they were a bit soft.

So be sure to adjust cooking time for both the power of your microwave AND the size of the corn!

Oh... I LOVE summertime!

This is my favorite way to prepare corn on the cob. DW can't eat it and I'm lazy, so this is a really fast and easy way to get to Cornville.

LOL! Sounds like it's a real marriage-saver technique!

Hope you're enjoying lots of nice, sweet corn this summer, Bob!

I have to ask. Is Cornville any where near Margaritaville?

I agree, 4 minutes per ear is way too long. Last night we cooked 3 ears for 4 minutes and they turned out great. Do need to try zapping with the husks on though. Up til now we have shucked them first, buttered them, wrapped 'em in wax paper and then nuked them.

I would guess that the fact that you've been cooking them with the husks OFF would certainly mean that you'd want to cook them for less time. Give the husks-on technique a try, but obviously you'll want to adjust the cooking time for the level of done-ness that you prefer (some people like it crisp, some like it soft). 4 minutes per ear (with the husks on) works great for me with moderate-to-large ears of corn... but YMMV (your mileage may vary).

Corn is ready in Eastern Washington, we have been eating it for 3 weeks. Guess I will give this microwave technique a try. Thanks for the info. It has been in triple digits for a few weeks now!

Triple-digit temps are HOT. Hope it cools off for you soon, Teresa!

I had Minn corn fresh from the field on July 20th. It was good.
