Wink Easiest and Yummy Corn-On-The-Cob

Purchase 1 to 2 ears of corn per person, in the husk. Do not shuck. To cook, ether fire up the charcoal, and cook with the lid on, in the husk, for ten minutes, or microwave each ear for 5 minutes. The corn is still crisp and sweet, and hot, so be careful removing the husk. Slater with butter, and season with salt & pepper, or maybe with a little paprika, salt, and pepper. For a little different flavor, you can drizzle fresh-squeezed lime juice over the corn.

Personally, I like the microwaved corn the best. It's sweet and crunchy on the cob.

Chief, this is what I do now.



Three minutes per ear seems to work for us.

This is a cool technique. I’ve used it before but I still manually shuck the corn and steam it for some reason.

The ability to “reverse shuck” is the best part!

I microwaved corn in the husk once. One ear had a cooked bug in it.

This is how I do it, when I'm just nuking a quick ear for myself. If I'm cooking multiple ears, I shuck and clean them, then put them in boiling water for about 5-7 minutes.

Meh, it happens. I just rinse it off.

^ Same here, as far as the occasional little bug.....doesn't happen often though.

The microwave method Andy mentioned works well for me too, as I usually only cook one ear at a time.

Someone gave me a couple ears of corn out of their garden once and when I started to shuck the first ear, there was a HUGE caterpillar wound around the top.

I freaked. And tossed the corn. I couldn't bring myself to shuck the other ear.

Funny, when I had my own garden, I never sprayed and I never had bugs in my corn.

Same with me. And when I stopped into our farm market last week to get my tomatoes (which I eat my weight in every summer, lol) she told me they'd have their corn in soon. And it's soooooooo good. They have both bi-color and white (Silver Queen) and both varieties are so sweet and so tender that you can eat it raw. Which I have done

Well, it's easier to control a contained crop than it is several acres. I've found the occasional worm-like creature in ears of corn, but not often.

We like to grill shucked corn on the cob. I love the smoky, charred flavor it gets.

We grilled corn occasionally, but would leave it in the husk.
