We've always boiled our corn on the cob, however after reading other reviewers comments here, I convinced my wife to let me microwave them this time. She was sceptical at first, but we both agree now that microwaving brought out better taste in the corn.
Instead of wrapping in a wet paper towel however, we simply pulled back the husk to expose about 3/4 of the cob, cleaned out the tassel, rinsed the cob liberally inside and out, then pulled the husk back around the cob.
We microwaved two at a time for 2:15 minutes, turned them over, and did them for another 2:15 mins.
If you're doing more than two cobs, leave them to continue to steam in their husks until they're all done.
Then remove the husk and serve.
