Crazy Easy Corn on the Cob

This is the neatest trick I’ve come across lately. And I owe it all to my Mother-in-law. Simply take 2 ears of corn in the husk. Place them in the microwave and nuke for 10 minutes. Remove and cut off an inch or 2 of the bottom — enough to remove the section where the husks attach. Give it a few good shakes to loosen things up and help the cob start moving out the opening you’ve made. Then just push and squeeze it out the bottom — almost like you’re emptying a tube of toothpaste.

I tried this with week-old corn. I knew it would have very little natural sweetness left if I boiled it, but honest to goodness it tasted like fresh picked using this microwave method.

My husband thought it was great, too. “You know what this means, right? You’ll have to admit my mom was right about something.” Oh well, it’s worth it. Head to the farmer’s market and try this today!
