“No need to remove silk from corn on the cob. Fast and easy microwave recipe that is shucked without removing shucks or silk. If cooking more than one ear, simply increase cooking time by about two minutes.” - by CCARR48
Original recipe yields 1 serving
- Place ear of corn in a microwave oven and cook on high for 2 minutes; flip corn over and cook on high until kernels are hot and steaming, another 2 minutes.
- Place corn ear on a cutting board, using a pot holder or folded kitchen towel, and cut off the bottom of the ear, exposing 1/4 to 1/2 inch of kernels. Hold the ear from the top and squeeze ear of corn out of the husk from top to bottom. Husks and silk will be left behind.
- Spread ear with butter and season with salt.

"Actually, 4 minutes per ear (for 2 just double the time) is perfect and there is no need to flip. I have used this method for years and it works nicely...." See more"
"This is a 10 star method for cooking corn - absolutely no silk - not a single thread! The corn is cooked to perfection. FANTASTIC!..." See more"
"My Mom sent me a YouTube video of an older man making corn like this and I decided to try it and it works just like this recipe says. The only down side is that you do have to cut off one of the ends..." See more, which I like to use as my handle but at least I don't have to peel them anymore!"
