    I got this cooking tip from Quick Cooking Magazine several years ago. It's nice for those that can't have a grill or when it is to cold to.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 ear of corn (left in husks)
    • plastic wrap


    1. 1
      Leave corn in the husks.
    2. 2
      Wrap each ear in a piece of plastic wrap; as many as you need.
    3. 3
      Microwave on high for 4 minutes per ear.
    4. 4
      CAREFULLY unwrap corn and peel the husk off; the silk should just come right out.
    5. 5
      Enjoy with butter and salt if you wish.

      I have made this twice in two days. I didn't want to review it yesterday because the corn was thoroughly overcooked at 4 minutes. (And that was for two ears.) So...I insightfully determined that that wasn't the fault of the technique, but of the youth of the corn. So tonight I nuked the corn (again two ears) for two minutes (one minute per ear) and it is perfect ...and the silk comes off soooooo wonderfully easily. So I recommend to my fellow 'zaarites that you consider the time of the year and the probable maturity of the corn in deciding how long to microwave. Personally, I probably will use this technique forevermore. Thanks so much for posting it!
