There are many different things that we might enjoy eating in the summer but perhaps a favorite for many people is corn on cob. Not only is it a delicious treat, it is also relatively easy to both make and eat. Some people, however, struggle over cleaning the corn and this can be enough to keep you from making it frequently. That is about to change.
This recipe is for corn on the cob but it is the easiest recipe you will ever see in your life. You simply put it in the microwave and when you are done, you will be able to peel everything from the corn in one easy movement. Not only is it delicious, it is piping hot and ready to eat. All you need to do is add some butter and salt.
Corn on the cob, fully in the husk
Oven mitt or kitchen towel
Feel free to trim the fuzzy end of corn, however leave the corn with the husks intact as much as possible.
Place the corn on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 2 minutes per corn on the cob, (ie, if you have 2 cobs, microwave time will be 4 minutes; if you have 3 cobs, microwave time will be 6 minutes; and so on).
Once the microwave time has elapsed, let the corn sit in the husks for 5 or so minutes. Be very careful – the corn will be very hot once done in the microwave.
Once the corn has sat for a few minutes, cut about an inch from the end of the corn with a stub (do not cut the end with the silk showing).
Carefully (it might still be hot – if so use an oven mitt or kitchen towel), grab the end of the corn with the silk and pull it away.
Enjoy your delicious corn on the cob with no silk! Serve with a pat of butter, or pop on the BBQ and baste generously with melted butter until slightly charred.
