If you have never tried cooking your corn on the cob in the microwave, you are missing out! To me, cooking the corn in the husk gives it a GREAT flavor.
I have been cooking my corn in the microwave for years but I just recently read about an easiser way of husking the corn. Now it is definitely the easiest way to cook corn.

Ingredients

2
corn on the cob in the husk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Remove only the outer husks that look old and dirty.
2
Wrap each ear in a damp paper towel.
Microwave on high 4-6 minutes. If cooking more than 2 ears, you might need to add a little more cooking time.
3
Let sit for a 2-3 minutes to cool a little so it won't be as hot to handle.
Remove paper towel.
Cut the stalk end off of the corn.
4
Grab hold of the end with the silk and squeeze.
The corn will slide out leaving all the silk inside of the huak.
Season to taste.
