I remember my family cooking corn in the microwave when my Dad brought home a microwave for the first time and it was like magic. It took only minutes and the corn was steaming hot and just the right tenderness.
In this video, grandpa Ken shows us how he cooks corn in the microwave and when cooked, it just slips out of the husk without any pesky corn silks and is ready to eat! When peeling raw corn, it’s always difficult to remove all the ‘corn hair’ as my mother would say but when cooking it in the microwave, it eliminates that problem and no corn silks get stuck to the corn.
If you want to cook more than 2 ears of corn at once, many microwaves are large enough to accommodate 4 or more ears of corn and you would just need to adjust the cooking time. Please share this great tip for cooking corn without annoying corn silks with your friends and family.
