Recently I learned a really fun way to cook corn on the cob:

  1.   Rinse the unshucked ear of corn.
  2. Chop off the stem leaving the husk whole.
  3. Place the whole ear in the microwave and cook for 4 minutes.
  4. Using a heat-proof glove (like ov-glove) remove the steaming ear.
  5. 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.
  6. The corn tastes really “corney” – especially with a little salt and butter!  YUM!
