Previously, I wrote about how to cook the perfect corn. I recently discovered a new way to cook corn: in the microwave! It's not perfect but tasty and is a lot easier to do as there is no pot of boiling water needed.
Place corn in the microwave and cook on high heat for 6 to 8 minutes.
When done cooking, carefully remove the corn. It is one hot steamy package of corn! Cut the bottom section off.
It should be a nice cross-segment.
Grasp the corn by the silks at the top and shake vigorously. (Nate took this picture and complained I was moving too much, that's why the picture is blurry.)
After a couple of good shakes the corn should slide right out of the husks. The silks will stay in the husks leaving you a beautiful cob of cooked corn.
Voila! No silks. It's cooked, though not perfectly even. There were a couple of raw-ish spots but it was tasty and there was no pot to clean!
