How To Make Corn on The Cob in Microwave

FYI: It comes out perfect every time. Soft, moist, no strings. 4 minutes.

  1. Buy corn in the cob in the husk ๐ŸŒฝ
  2. Place corn in the microwave (husk and all)
  3. Cook on High for 4 minutes (one at a time)
  4. Grab corn out of the microwave (I recommend using a towel as it will be piping hot)
  5. Cut the nub part square off to expose the corn (the opposite end of the stringy part)
  6. Wrap a towel around corn and squeeze out the corn with both hands at the shaggy end (visualize the process of squeezing frosting on a cake).
  7. Corn should slide right out (you can use the knife to get it started if stuck)
  8. There will be no strings or anything to clean off
  9. Butter, salt, whatever.
  10. Stick in the plastic corn handles
  11. Enjoy!

TLDR: Put corn in the microwave and cook for 4 minutes. Cut off the end and squeeze it out. Spruce it up with seasonings and start the typewriter!
