this really does work! Put whole corn, husk and all in the microwave for 4 minutes. Then cut off the end and squeeze corn out. The silks come off with the husk and corn is cooked well. 2 ears for 4 1/2 minutes

Easy way to shuck corn! To avoid shucking corn and trying to get all of the silk off, just microwave your corn 4-5 minutes in the microwave for one ear; or 10 minutes for 3 ears. The husks keep the moisture in and help steam the corn. Cut an inch off the wide end and the corn slips right out…no silks!
Place corn in a microwave. Up to 4 ears of corn at one time. Microwave on high for 8 minutes. (4 minutes if you cook a single cob) Remove from the microwave (use oven mitts---the corn will be hot). Place on a cutting board.Take a sharp knife and cut the end off - about 1 to 2 inches. Pick the ear of corn up and hold at the top. In a shaking movement, shake downward and the corn will slide out leaving the corn-silk in the husk. Pinner Wrote:This really works and corn is tender!
