This is a no-nonsense recipe for corn on the cob. Perfect for when you run out of stove or grill space. I freeze the corn on the cob in plastic bags, and remove a single ear of frozen corn in the cold winter months to have the sweet taste of summer corn throughout the year!

This is a fantastic, easy way to enjoy corn on the cob. I generally microwave 2 minutes, on high, per cob. It is fast, simple, and tastes the same as boiled corn. Be sure to wrap in the damp paper towels as this helps steam the corn.

We've always boiled our corn on the cob, however after reading other reviewers comments here, I convinced my wife to let me microwave them this time. She was sceptical at first, but we both agree now that microwaving brought out better taste in the corn. Instead of wrapping in a wet paper towel however, we simply pulled back the husk to expose about 3/4 of the cob, cleaned out the tassel, rinsed the cob liberally inside and out, then pulled the husk back around the cob. We microwaved two at a time for 2:15 minutes, turned them over, and did them for another 2:15 mins. If you're doing more than two cobs, leave them to continue to steam in their husks until they're all done. Then remove the husk and serve.
