Fresh corn on the cob
Thursday, June 14, 2012
Hi all! This trick may be an old one, but it's new to me and I thought I would share it. My husband found it on the Internet and it worked great!
We had a local company give us some fresh corn, still in the husks, today. You simply place the corn cob, still in the husk, in the microwave on high for 8 minutes. Remove it from the microwave after the 8 minutes. Be careful, it will be very hot! Hold with oven mits and cut off the stalk end. Holding the silks with your other hand, hold upright and shake out the cob! The corn cob will come out as pretty as you please with very few, if any, silks attached!
The best part is that it cooks the corn cob at the same time! It will be ready to eat once you have removed the husk and silks! I hope you find this as easy to do as we did! Enjoy!
