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.
