Stick it, husk and all, right in the microwave for 2-1/2 to 3 min. per ear. Absolutely the easiest way to shuck corn. Just grab the silk and it all pulls right off. You can cut off the stalk end, before microwaving, and then after cooking, hold the silk end and shake the ear right out, clean a can be. Try it you will be amazed. Terry R.

Someone just emailed this to me, so passing it along.
The Best Way to Cook Corn on the Cob for a Crowd?

It's Cooler Corn!
Am I the only person who hasn't heard of "cooler corn"?
As an obsessive food nerd, you'd expect that I would have at least heard of it, but over the weekend I was blind-sided by the simple genius of this method for cooking loads of corn on the cob perfectly.
I was hepped to it while visiting my family in
Maine . Short story: We like corn on the cob. And with eight adults at the table, that means a couple of dozen ears. We would have used the lobster pot to cook them all, but the lobster pot was busy steaming lobster.

Then my sister, a capable Maine cook with years of camping experience, says "let's do cooler corn!" Before I can ask "what the hell is cooler corn?" a Coleman cooler appears from the garage, is wiped clean, then filled with the shucked ears. Next, two kettles-full of boiling water are poured over the corn and the top closed.
Then nothing.
When we sat down to dinner 30 minutes later and opened it, the corn was perfectly cooked. My mind was blown. And I'm told that the corn will remain at the perfect level of doneness for a couple of hours.
Turns out, Cooler Corn is pretty well known among the outdoorsy set But for those of uswho avoid tents as much as possible, it's perfect for large barbecues and way less of mess than grilling. In fact, I may even buy another cooler just so I'm ready for next summer. Now that I'm in the know.

Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

This is off topic, but no matter how you cook corn; try rubbing a wedge of lime over the cob before you add your other condiments.
