A long time ago a old man told me about this technique and I was very skeptical the corn would come out juicy like it does when it was boiled ...Boy was I so wrong !!
Its delicious and so easy to do and you don't have the mess with boiling the corn.
When I want just a few ears of corn , I like to do mine in the micro on a hot evening and my house doesn't get hot from boiling the corn.
When the corn is done the the inner silk just slides off and the corn is so sweet and juicy.
Its very nutritional this way because all the nutreints are not all boiled away.
For the oven : preheat @ 350° place un-husked corn on the middle oven rack and bake for 15 minutes ;( no need to moisten down the corn) the husk will get shriveled and crisp but the corn will stay juicy in the center.
For the microwave : place 2-3 ears of un-husked corn on the cob in the microwave and set on high level , Cook for 5-8 minutes (depending on how many ears of corn your cooking at one time) ; turning over 1/2 way through cooking time.
To check the corn for doneness : Peel back the husk and see if the corn is tender , if so then remove all husk and silk and enjoy !
