DIRECTIONS

  • Snip the silk from the top of the ear.
  • For one unshucked ear, place in the microwave for 2 minutes on high.
  • Rotate the cob one quarter turn and microwave for 2 more minutes.
  • Turn the cob again and microwave for 2 more minutes.
  • Remove from the microwave and run briefly under cool water.
  • Shuck the ear (the silk comes off easily now).
  • The time will have to be increased for more than one ear.
  • If making the corn ahead of time, store the cooked unshucked ears in a brown bag until ready to serve.
  • Serve with salt and melted butter or compound butters made with butter, garlic and herbs.
