Had the first local corn of the season last night. The ears are small but I imagine by the end of this month they will be bigger. Yum! We did them in the microwave and they came out great. Been doing them in it before but wrapping them in plastic wrap with a little water. Towards the end of the season we cook up ears then strip the corn and freeze it to have in the winter.

BTW the local farm stand is $5 for a bakers dozen.

4 Ears will fill me up, maybe a fresh tomato and some cukes (soaked in apple cider vinegar) on the side.

Corn is ready here in Oregon, DW did the micro last night, she didn't like how they turned out...4 min for 4 ears

We will work on the time involved to make it work for us...Great idea

That is how we did them. One ear for four min. I think the smaller ones could have gone a little less but four is enough time to get the last one coated with butter and salt

Time will vary on a "per ear" basis. If you get a time that's perfect for one ear, cooking 4 will change it totally!

That's the downside to any microwave cooking. Times change according to the amount of "mass" being cooked at one time. Been cooking with a microwave for a LONG time now, and still screwing with new ways to do stuff....

Experimenting and experience key to successful nuking...

May try this. Dh usually does them over the fire in the husks. Not sure if I want to make it my duty again.

We have been microwaving our corn for years. I use a sharp knife and cut off both ends. Then remove most of the layers of the husk leaving 2 or 3 layers. I micro 3 or 4 ears at 2 minutes and 15 seconds per ear. You can adjust time for your micro. Works great for us.

4 ears @ 4 minutes (smaller ears) didn't work for us so we will play with the time. I like the idea of not heating up the MH when its 80-90 outside.
