Easiest Way to Cook Corn on the Cob: Microwave Monday


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

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.
