Fast & Easy Corn on the Cob Recipe Using Microwave

Don’t judge this corn by its cover.

It is M’s favorite time of year. Hot enough to splash in the pool all morning, late summer rain storms to watch in the afternoon and fresh sweet corn on the cob.

This is the fastest way I know of to get my son M’s favorite food on the the table. I prefer this method over boiling the corn because it comes out steamed and crisp, it never tastes soggy.

I promise you in total of 7 minutes you can have fresh corn on the cob steamed and on your kids plate ready for a dollop of butter.

First: cut all excess husk off cob

Second: Run water on the husk until it is all of it is wet.

Third: Wrap cob in paper towel. The towel should become damp. If not, gently squeeze the cob until water soaks through. If that doesn’t make the towel moist, drizzle water over it. It doesn’t need to be soaking wet, just damp.
