Quick cooking corn on the cob

You may have seen this but it really works! I cook my corn about 3 min per ear. It's not the most optimal way to cook corn on the cob, but it's great for a quick fix!

  1. Thanks for posting this. I tried it and it worked like a charm.

    1. So, for those that don't want to go to Youtube... 2 ears of corn, still unshucked, about 8 minutes in the microwave, then cut the stem end off, grab the top part (silk and all) and shake and the cob comes out, no silk.

        1. Vallarta Mercado has 5 ears for a buck this week.
          had some last night but didn't cook it this way, saw it too late [just now].

            American corn or Mexican corn?

          2. Great tip! Thanks for sharing - and Wyogal, for explaining it so didn't have to go to youtube:)

            1. The tastiest way to eat corn, in my opinion, is RAW. What's quicker than raw foods? No mess, no fuss; just shuck and eat :-) Plus, raw corn tends to digest easier.

                I think it's best raw or just cooked about 1-2 minutes, max. Especially if just picked that morning.

                Grocery store corn is another story :)
