Why I Love This Recipe

easy way to cook and husk a corn on the cob

Ingredients You'll Need

1 or more ears fresh, un-shucked sweet corn


Place 1 to 4 ears of corn in the microwave. Arrange 1 to 4 ears of corn, un-shucked, in the microwave. If you prefer, you can set them on a microwaveable plate or tray. If you need to cook more than 4 ears of corn, cook them in batches.

Microwave for 3 to 5 minutes. For just 1 or 2 ears of corn, microwave on high for 3 minutes. For 3 or 4 ears, microwave for 4 minutes. If you like softer corn or if your ears are particularly large, microwave for an additional minute.

Allow to cool. Set the ears on a cooling rack or cutting board to cool. When the silks and top leaves are cool enough to handle, quickly shuck the husks off the cobs. The corn will stay quite warm in their husks, so wait to shuck them until just before serving.
