This is a first for me as I have never posted a link to a video but when our dear friend George sent us this video we knew we just had to try this way to fix corn on the cob and when we tried it worked just like the video.
Could not be easier, decide on how many ears you want to cook, in my case 2.
I did vary a little from the instructions here - in the video you are shown to cut the end off the corn after microwaving but since it will be very hot I decided to cut it before cooking to minimize the handeling of the hot corn and it worked great. Might try it the other way next (cut after cooking) but our corn was cooked perfectly!
In the microwave for (4) minutes per ear, we had two so (8) minutes.
Now here comes the magic part, using a hot mitt you just squeeze the end and out pops the corn, cooked perfectly and you did not have to shuck it and no pesky silk to remove. There were only a couple of pieces of silk that easily pulled away from the cob.
It is VERY HOT so be careful but I just put in the corn holders and let it cool a little while putting my dinner together. A local store has been having the decadent French President Sea Salt Butter (from Normandy) on sale and it is perfect with corn because you butter and salt in one application. Corn is such a summer staple and this makes it so easy. All of you friends who live in the Sacramento area you know what I am talking about with that wonderful Sloughhouse corn that you wait in line for and get big brown bags full to share with your friends and neighbors. We have good corn here in Idaho but I confess every summer I think about Sloughhouse corn and fresh tomatoes from the garden for dinner! So good!
