Think corn on the cobb is something fancy? Mom figured out a secret: Two minutes in the microwave.
Just peel enough of the husk so that it looks like this, or if youve bought it without the husk wrap a damp papertowel around it, and microwave. Hold it under the faucet on cold and the silks come off extremely easily.
If you're adding ears, add minutes, but there's no need to add a whole two each. My mom eyeballs it; 5 ears - 8 minutes, 2 ears - 4 minutes, 3 ears - 5-6 minutes, etc.
