"No need to remove silk from corn on the cob. Fast and easy microwave recipe that is shucked without removing shucks or silk. If cooking more than one ear, simply increase cooking time by about two minutes."

This is a 10 star method for cooking corn - absolutely no silk - not a single thread! The corn is cooked to perfection. FANTASTIC!
I love, love, love fresh corn. I boiled 5 ears for the family yesterday. They were wonderful. (Bring water to boil with 1/2 tsp each sugar and salt. Add corn, cover, turn off heat and steep for 10 minutes). I had one ear left today and tried this microwave method. The silks came out cleanly, but 4 minutes overcooked and dried out the kernels. I don't know if it was the strength of the microwave, the size of the corn, or the missing seasoning; but I'm going back to shuck and boil.
Actually, 4 minutes per ear (for 2 just double the time) is perfect and there is no need to flip. I have used this method for years and it works nicely.
Wasn't completely sold on this idea of cleaning and shucking corn even though I had viewed the video.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnBF6bv4Oe4&feature=share. The method does work. After I cut the end off the wide end of the corn, I held on to the silk end and shook a couple of times, and the corn slid right out of the husk, leaving behind one silk on one of the ears of corn. For two ears of corn, I cooked in the microwave for 8 minutes on High. I added butter and sea salt. Delicious - perfect for two people!
My Mom sent me a YouTube video of an older man making corn like this and I decided to try it and it works just like this recipe says. The only down side is that you do have to cut off one of the ends, which I like to use as my handle but at least I don't have to peel them anymore!
This is my favorite way for sweet summer corn on the cob, unless is is so fresh I eat it raw off the cob.
I serve mine w/fresh white bread, I like the Nature's Own Butter Top bread. You can use what ever, soft rolls work nicely too, main thing is the bread is fresh and soft. We spread the butter on a slice of the bread and once the corn is clean we wrap the bread around the hot corn and softly coat the corn w/the butter from the bread. While we let the corn cool for a minute or so we eat the bread w/the melted butter on it. It is some kinda good! The fresh bread is slightly heated from the corn and it has the salt on it...fabulous! My favorite is to use Jane's Crazy Salt.
Have been cookin the corn this way for many years. Full proof method. Recommend cooking each ear of corn for 4 mins so 3 ears would take 12 mins. No need to turn but I wouldn't cook more that 4 ears of corn at one time.
This will be my new go-to way to cook corn on the cob. Perfection. I love that there is no mess from the husks. I cooked 2 ears at once and cooked for 5 minutes. I opened one ear and thought that it needed another minute so I popped the other one back in and it was perfect. I think the length of time will depend on the number of ears you microwave at one time and the wattage of your microwave. Mine is a 950 watter.
