Corn on the Cob The best way I've found to cook corn on the cob, without taking a lot of time is in the microwave. The big advantage of this is the husk keeps all the nutrients and taste inside.

Update Servings
  • Cobs of corn with the husk still on.
  • If the cobs have a large tassel or stem cut them off, being careful not to cut into the cob. Remove any loose outer leaves of the husk.

  • Place two cobs in microwave with the husks still on.
  • Cook for three minutes on high.
  • Then rotate husks 180 degrees.
  • Cook for another three minutes. With most microwaves, two cobs at a time work well. For one only cut the time by one third.
  • Peel back the husk, but don't remove. You will find the silk comes off much easier and the husk peeled back makes a great handle.
  • If you need to cook more than two for a meal, repeat as often as needed until you have all the corn you need.
  • The first done cobs will stay hot while you do the others until you remove the husk.
Note: The times work for a 1200 W microwave. Give longer for lower powered unit.
