Tip Tuesday #8 {Microwave Your Corn, Husk & All}

This week's tip is brought to you by my fabulous  mother-in-law, who has been staying with me and taking care of my son while I recover from surgery.  She is amazing.  And she also knows how to make amazing corn on the cob--without all the fuss of husking it, getting all the silk out, boiling a pot of water, and timing everything just right.  How?  The microwave!

1. Place a damp paper towel on a plate, and then put your corn on the cob on top (husk, silk, and all!).  Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes per cob, turning them halfway through the cooking time.
2. When the husks feel hot, take them out and wrap them in a towel or aluminum foil.  Let them stand like that for about 5 minutes.
3. Pull off the husks and silk (which is actually a lot easier to do when they're hot than when they're cold), and you're ready to go!
4. Slather that corn on the cob with butter, salt, and pepper, and enjoy!  That was easy.
