Well because a couple weeks ago, a link popped up on my facebook newsfeed, of an elderly gentleman showing us how to not only cook the corn to perfection in the microwave, but how to shuck it easily removing all the silk and with no work at all. I HAD to try it.
Oh my gosh. I feel like such an idiot now because I keep thinking of all the times I've made corn on the cob and could have been doing it this way. So in case you are not yet familiar with this process, let me show you.
So, you are going to take the whole corn on the cob, without shucking, and you're going to microwave each ear for 4 minutes.
Once it is done, carefully remove from the microwave and set down on a cutting board. Using a knife cut off the husk.
Now, you're going to grab the corn by the top where the silk is
Give it a good shake and watch the corn slide RIGHT out, no silk whatsoever.
Slather on some butter, and enjoy some quick and cooked to perfection corn. It's THAT easy.
If you don't believe me, give it a whirl. I promise you will never shuck or cook corn another way :)
