It's Time For Corn on the Cob!

Just wanted to share this great video I found for making corn on the cob in the microwave... without shucking it and without dealing with all the silks!

Tried it last night for the first time and it worked like a charm! Plus, it doesn't heat up the inside of the RV like boiling it does (the AC has a hard enough time when the temps climb, LOL!).

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

I've been using this method for a year and it absolutely works great every time.

We've been using the microwave technique too. I have started cooking the ears first then cutting off the stalk end. It's a lot easier to do after it's cooked. I wonder if one would get the same result whether it's grilled or cooked over charcoal. It seems like it would be the cooking part that would be important.

We saw that too, seems a little early. Maybe last years. I soak the unshucked ears for at least 24 hours then throw them on the grill at medium heat for 20 minutes. Peel them carefully, they are hot, and you will have the sweetest juiciest corn imaginable.

And if you're bbq-ing corn for a large group, have a large pot of near boiling hot water near by and drop some blocks of butter into it. The butter will melt and remain on the surface. After husking the cooked corn, drop or dip it in to the pot. When you use tongs to remove the corn it will automatically be entirely covered with butter when you remove it from the pot.

Going to have to try cooking "husk on". We've been removing and cooking for several years, since reading about the process. Actually, we just cooked 3 ears for dinner last night. Our microwave is not real powerful, but we cooked those for 4 minutes (total) and they were perfect!

Point being, cooking times may vary from the 4 minutes per ear specified in the video above, depending on size and power of microwave. Our experience has been great with this method and we prefer it over any other. OK, that's a lie. Should say - other than maybe grilling. LOVE the flavor that adds!

Amazing..Gonna try that when corn is ready. We have a few more weeks before local corn is out.

For 4 ears, I cook them on high for 4 minutes, then flip them over and nuke them another 3 minutes. They usually turn out really well. The kernels aren't all mushy but are "tender crisp". You'll probably need to experiment a little to get the time right.

You have to cut up from the stalk though. If the husk curves under the largest diameter of the cob, the cob won't slide out. We have local corn now and corn from my garden won't be too far off. YUM!!

There is a farm stand about two miles from us that has wonderful corn. It won't be ready until sometime next month though.

Yer microwave is the perfect way to cook corn. Been doing it for years.

Neat trick! Will have to try that one next!
