Easiest Ever Corn on the Cob
Here's what you do:
Set the ear of corn, unshucked, in the microwave. (We didn't even use a paper plate, just set it directly on the turn table.)
Cook for 3 minutes.
Remove it with towels. It's SUPER HOT! Let it cool slightly. Do not attempt to shuck it!
Still using toweling to protect your hands, cut about 1-2 inches off the blunt end off (that is, not the pointy end).
Holding the blunt end, squeeze the corn out the top end. It will slide out pretty easily. If it doesn't, cut a little more off the blunt end.
Season with butter and pepper, or butter and Old Bay seasoning (rubbed directly off the crabs, of course!). This was so delish that even my oldest child who have never liked corn no matter what, actually told his wife, "I think I could eat corn this way."
I can see buying a couple ears of corn to go with my lunch since it's this easy!
