Our friends John and Tina Sorrells told us about this little trick for cooking fresh corn in the microwave. We had this at their house one night and couldn’t believe it was from the microwave. By the way, I think it's time for another invite!
We love fresh corn in the summer and throwing it on the grill is our favorite way to eat it. However, on those days when my husband, the “Grill Master”, gets home late, we will throw the corn in the microwave, husks and all!
Cut off the ends of the corn so they will fit on the microwave turntable. You don’t want the pieces to overlap. Place the corn on a damp paper towel and cook on high for about 2-4 minutes per ear. Turn the ears of corn over half way through the cooking cycle. The corn cooks in its own natural juices. Remove the corn and wrap it in a dish towel or tin foil. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then smother it in butter, a little salt and pepper and enjoy!
