Neat Trick, Cooking Corn

 I love corn on the cob. Someone recently sent me this link in an email so I had to check it out and I can attest it worked very well.
It does work a little easier if after cooking you don't cut the ear too close to the end. Pretty neat trick though.

    1. It worked good for me, It does seem to work better if the corn is cut at the widest point at the end otherwise you may have to squeeze it a little to get it started.

  5. But making a mess is the best way to due corn. We cook 16 ears at a time for 7 people. But I do like his idea if we had only 2 at home.

    1. Kymber, it is actually pretty good, basically it is being steamed in it's own husk in the microwave. BTW, you haven't lived till you eat deep fried corn on the cob.....just saying.

    2. Dear Duke - deep fried corn on the cob???? oh i must learn more. i have never heard of it!!! i am going to scour the internet now for a recipe!!!! woohoo!!!

    3. Kymber, I have never made it myself but I have had it at restaurants down here. Basically you husk the corn like you were going to boil it however it is cooked in hot oil like french fries. I don't know how long it would take but I guess less than cooking in water.

    4. I guess I misunderstood. I thought it was just a quick zap to remove the silk and husk and then the corn was cooked by some other method like grill or whatever.

      Deep fried...also gonna scour the Internet.

    5. agirlandhergun, this cooks the corn fully, 4 min per ear at least that's what it took on my microwave.
