Best And Easiest Corn On The Cob

There are videos all over the internet about this method but here is a description.

Prep
Cook
Serves 6people
Ingredients
corn on the cob unshucked
Directions
1.
Remove a few of the outer husks that might be dirty.
2.
Cut the bottoms off of the corn. Be sure to cut above the part of the cob where the husk is attached. It would be above the part of the cob where it starts to round down.
3.
Place a moist paper towel on the bottom of the microwave or on top of the carousel and place the corn on the paper towel.
4.
Use this guide for your cook time. Remember the cook time can vary for each microwave.
5.
1 ear - 2 minutes
6.
2 ears - 3 to 4 minutes
7.
3 ears - 5 to 6 minutes
8.
4 ears - 7 to 8 minutes
9.
6 ears - 8 to 9 minutes
10.
After cooking, let the corn sit about 2 minutes. It will continue to cook and will be cooler and easier to handle. If you let it sit too long, the silk will stick to the ear and will be harder to clean.
11.
Pick the cooked corn up by the top (you might want to use an oven mitt if it is too hot to handle) and squeeze and lightly shake out the ear of corn. It should just slide out leaving the silk and all of the husks intact.
12.
Just like magic, your corn is cleaned and cooked!
