Microwave Corn on the Cob

My husband showed me a link on how to cook corn on the cob in the microwave, so I had to try it.
It is by far the easiest way to prepare it fresh on the cob, AND, the very best part is that it comes out entirely silk free!

Microwave Corn on the Cob
Place corn, un-husked, in microwave.
Microwave approximately 4 minutes per ear of corn.
Remove hot corn from microwave and cut in half at the bottom end of the ear.
Make sure you cut through corn, not just the stem end, like the picture below.

 Once bottom end is cut, grab the husk and silk at the top,

and gently pull up to remove it.

All of the silk will come off with the husk, and you will be left with a perfectly cooked and ready to eat ear of corn!

 Easy peasy!  Enjoy!


  1. If you have trouble removing the husk (because its hot). Screw a CORK SCREW into the cob hold on to the husk with hot pads and pull. Makes easy process even easier.

  2. great idea and it WORKS!!!! Try with melted butter and sprinkle parmesan cheese.
