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.

We loved the corn made this way. The corn was so sweet and fresh tasting, I hardly used butter. I think it will be the way we make corn from now on.

Absolutely the greatest. For over 70 years we were boiling. YUK. Thanks so much Corn is just coming in here and we did our first this way. GREAT. Oh, here is a little info for Y'all. You might be a Redneck (like me) if you have ever mailed a recipe suggestions to Chef Boyardee. Hey, it could happen :O)

What a great and easy way to do sweet corn! I had never imagined it could be so quick. The only problem I had was with the paper towels...the ones I had are cheap generic ones and they kept ripping after I got them wet. Thanks for the keeper Kittencal! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.
