Amazing . . .

microwave one ear of corn, four minutes 
take the corn cob out of the microwave, cut off the end,
hold on to the tassel top, shake it
shake it some more . . . until the cob begins to
separate from the silk and husk
and presto the corn cob slides out and
you have a perfect ear of cooked corn
no stringy tassel stuff on the corn either
it really works

here is the evidence
I couldn't get the corn in my mouth fast enough
believe me, it works
Google - microwave, corn on the cob
I grew up in Iowa
I can eat more than one ear for a meal
I am going to try the kettle method
so we can cook more ears than just one or two at a time
I plan to leave the husks and silk on
I will let you know if the above method works
for the kettle/hot water method

do you like salt and pepper
and butter on your
corn on the cob?
'till next time
Love, Lynne

I love corn on the cob, white silverqueen is so sweet and yummy.. Butter and pepper,please.. I have not tried this method of cooking though.. Have a happy weekend!

Well, that's good to know!
I have seen that method on Pinterest, but haven't tried it yet.
It's good to know it works so well.

Love butter and sea salt, and lots of black pepper on mine.
Tastes like summer :)

Have a great weekend, my friend.

Salt, pepper and butter--absolutely! My 5'2", 100 lb mother could eat six ears at a time!!

Wow..I have to try this. I am anxious to find out if the other method works. Right now I do the usual, husking and putting them in water and then letting them steam in the hot water. A friend of mine boils hers. Lots of methods. I had never heard of the micro wave method. Looks like it was mighty good! :)

Oh wait...salt, pepper and lots of butter! :)

Brilliant! Had not heard of this method before.

Butter of course! I can get by without the salt-and-pepper. I forgot about that microwave method. I usually do microwave it in a wet paper towel for four minutes. But that's after I've taken all the stuff off of it. I'll have to try that again thanks for reminding me.

My son wanted me to try this last week. He must have seen the instructions on YouTube and wanted me to try it. Now I'm inspired! Butter and salt...yum!

Yum . . . Butter and salt for us.

butter, salt and pepper but if it's silver queen the aforementioned aren't required. nice, but not required. right now I have a love hate relationship with corn on the cob. More than a month ago, a molar split in two while eating corn on the cob; my dental appointment is the 26th of this month. come to think of it I have a hate relationship with this new to me dentist. if a totally vertically cracked tooth isn't a dang emergency, what the heck is?

Definitely the kettle method and butter and salt.
