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

  • 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.
