New Method for Corn on the Cob

For those of you with a microwave, this looks easy enough... No pot to clean either.

This method actually works great. About 2 years ago my daughter in law told me about it - 8 minutes for 2 ears. It works! No silking and corn comes out so tender. My husband has always disliked grocery store corn - he raised his own and insisted it be picked right at cooking time. Those days are gone now that we don't grow corn any more. So I was delighted to try this and it really works - makes even that grocery store corn edible.

You're welcome Tim. This came to me courtesy of America's Digital Goddess, Kim Komando.

Glad it works, Melanie. Thanks for the first hand knowledge. I'd feel like an idiot if it didn't actually work. mg

Great tip. Went out and bought three ears. It worked just fine. We each ate one and made corn muffins with the remaining one.

Good eating

How do you eat just 1 ear of corn? I have a hard time stopping at 6, let alone 1! Of course I have to take a L O N G walk afterwards.

I'm glad this is working out so well. My wife came home from the supermarket today reporting that the corn on the cob selection was pretty bad. Very little left on the shelf, and all picked over. It will have to wait till tomorrow. That video must be going viral. Headlines: "Corn Shortage Hits North America" "Scientists Blame TomK"

No microwave in the trailer, but that's the way we always do it a home. We find that the shucks actually enrich the flavor.

One ear?

We had already had a $5 lobster roll. The one ear felt like plenty. It was great. Since we've become trailer people we eat less.

Norm, not sure what a lobster roll is, but it sure sounds good. I don't think I ever had a bad meal that had the word "lobster" in it!

TomK.
A lobster roll is a roll stuffed with lobster, a little lettuce and Mayo. Other items can be in the mix. It's like pizza, the formula varies by restaurant and even region. In NL it included onions, tomatoes, Celery and a garlic' roll, here it was just a hot dog roll. $5 is a great price.

If you're from the north east up thru Canada you know lobster.

I once had 6 business guest from Germany who wanted to try Lobster. We went out to dinner. When the lobster came no one would even take a bite. I guess they looked too bug like.
Life is surprise.
