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.

How to Make Microwave Corn on the Cob

Step-by-Step

  • 1Remove only the outer husks that look old and dirty.
  • 2Wrap 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.
  • 3Let 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.
  • 4Grab 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.
