Recently I learned a really fun way to cook corn on the cob:
- Rinse the unshucked ear of corn.
- Chop off the stem leaving the husk whole.
- Place the whole ear in the microwave and cook for 4 minutes.
- Using a heat-proof glove (like ov-glove) remove the steaming ear.
- Hold it upright – stem end on the counter, and pluck off the husk. Everything comes off – even the silk. It’s such a great technique.
- The corn tastes really “corney” – especially with a little salt and butter! YUM!
