2 Minute Corn on the Cob

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by cervantesbrandi

You will be amazed at how corn on the cob which usually took 30 minutes to an hour now takes 2 minutes per ear. My grandmother was out here in Denver visiting me (she is from Alabama) and she showed me this. I couldnt beleive how a microwave could do an ear of corn so good!
