Corn on the Cob: minutes in microwave for one ear; 10 minutes for 3 ears. Keep the husk on; they keep moisture in and steam the corn. Cut an inch off the wide end and the corn slips right out.no silks!
One simple trick that allows you to peel a whole head of garlic in under a minute! -- place entire head of garlic in a bowl, place an identical bowl on top, and shake! The head breaks apart into cloves, and the skins fall right off.
never shuck corn again!put it husk and all into microwave for 5 minutes. step cut an inch from the fat end. Step slide corn out from fat end. No silks! I've tried the oven method so now I'll try this method!
"Use a clean toothbrush to remove stray threads of silk from freshly shucked ears of corn. The bristles will lift them away quickly and efficiently" huh - never thought of that, and I hate cleaning corn!
Microwave cooking corn on the cob. No shucking or picking off the leftover silk. 2 cobs for 3 minutes. Cut off end before microwaving. Did not slip out of husk. Ended up cutting the husk lengthwise to get the cob out so all silk was left on cob.
