This was delicious. We usually use the new Lawry's garlic salt for seasoning, and this was a real treat. There is no need, however, to go through so many steps with the corn unless yours is all dried out. Actually if it is all dried out, don't buy it. We do not remove silks, re-tie, or soak in water. Corn is stored in crushed ice in the stores so it has plenty of moisture. Trim the stem and trim the loose silks at the end of the cob so the corn will fit on a microwave safe plate, cover with a lid. Don't open the husk at all. Microwave 5 min on one side, 3 min on the other for two ears, 4 min for three ears, 5 min for four ears. This is what we do at 5400 feet, possibly a little less for you if your altitude is lower. Using a hot pad in one hand because the ear will be VERY hot, cut the bottom of the cob off, right through the husks and cob. You need to catch at least one row of kernals - Now squeeze the ear from the top of the ear and keep squeezing while pressing down and the ear of corn will fall right out of the husk. If it is jammed, you probably have a husk still attached at the bottom, so slice off one more row of kernals. All of the silks will stay inside the husk and the corn will be moist and cooked perfectly.
What a wonderful and unique flavor this corn had. I loved the hint of mustard and honey. I thought I had fresh parsley, but was completely out. I decided to try it with a little freshly chopped chives. The flavors were different but still very tasty. I also sprinkled a little salt and pepper on the corn. I think I still prefer the stovetop method of cooking ears of corn, but I will definitely use the honey muster butter again. Next time I will make it with the parsley.

A nice change of pace. Liked the mustard under tones. We had very sweet corn and with the honey mustard this really was a sweet side. Cut the cook time to 8 minutes and could have cut to 6 minutes. Thanks for the post.
What a nice change from the routine 'butter 'n salt'. DH is a purist, and wouldn't try it, but that's his loss. I thought it was wonderful. I'm only reviewing the butter mix, as I'd already prepared the cobs for the electric steamer. I will however, give the microwave method a try next time. Thanks Tisme for a wonderful taste experience.

Quite yummy. Flavors work well. I cooked mine for a total of 8 minutes and they were way overdone. Next time I will just cook them for 5 and see what happens. A nice change to the standard old corn on the cob!
What a quick way to cook corn! In less than 30 mins! I was afraid it would taste too sweet or have too much mustard. Good thing, it didn't! They blended all together and evened out each other's flavor. Thanks for sharing, Tisme!
