    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Leaving the husks on while microwaving ensures a very tender steamed corn, you might not even want butter or salt after tasting this corn! --- don't worry the silks will fall right off after cooking! For each ear increase microwaving time 3 minutes. Cooking time is for 1 ear of corn :)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 ear of corn (do not remove the husks)
    • 2 damp paper towels (use a double paper towel)
    • butter
    • salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut off the floppy silks on top of the husks (do not remove the husk).
    2. 2
      Wet both papers towels and squeeze out the water then wrap each husk well with double layer of damp paper towels.
    3. 3
      Place the corn/s around the outside of the turntable.
    4. 4
      Microwave for 1-1/2 minutes on HIGH, turn the corn onto it's otherside and continue to cook for another 1-1/2 minutes (feel the ear to be sure they are very hot).
    5. 5
      Using a towel carefully remove from microwave and let sit for 5 minutes before removing the husks and silks, the silks will slide off like magic (BE CAREFUL these are very hot!).

      Fantastic! I used to steam it in the husk the way they do in the Eastern Shore area but this is even easier and just as tasty! I soak it in water for a short while instead of using damp paper towels. 1.5 to 2 mins on each side. Perfect every time!

      So happy to see this posted. I've been making my corn this way for the last few years. It was an accidental discovery. I was in a hurry one day and threw some corn in the microwave. It was LOVE at first bite. I don't use the damp paper towels though. And I don't time it because of the varianace in corn types and sizes. When I can smell the fresh husks, then I know they are done. It sure beats heating up the kitchen with the boiling water!

      Very easy but the best part is the taste. This is the best way to steam corn that I have found. Thanks for a keeper. Be sure to do only one ear at a time as the recipe mentions or it takes longer to cook.
