Easiest Way to Cook Corn on the Cob: Microwave Monday


Quick and Easy Way to Cook Corn on the Cob For Dinner

One of my favorite things about August is stopping at a roadside farmer’s market to buy cobs of locally grown corn! To cook it perfectly every time, I use the microwave.

The first time I nuked an ear of corn in the microwave I was AMAZED by how well it steamed the sweet kernels. No waiting for water to boil, and once cooked, the husk and silk slip off with ease!

It’s perfect for when you just want to cook an ear or two for dinner.
