One thing I love about the month of August is being able to stop at a roadside farmer’s market to buy cobs of locally grown corn!
To cook it quickly, I use the microwave – cooks it perfectly every time!
The first time I microwaved an ear of corn I was blown away by how well it steamed the sweet kernels.
I also love that there is no waiting for water to boil. And once cooked, the husk and silk slip off with ease!
Perfect for when you just want to cook a single cob of corn for dinner.
How to Cook Corn on the Cob in the Microwave
Leave the corn in its husk and microwave on HIGH for four minutes.
Let the corn slightly cool and then slip off the husk and silk. Husking corn is easier after it cooks in the microwave!
Slather on the butter and enjoy!
