Corn ...Ok now I'm hungry

Ok... Corn is on sale for .15 and ear and it looks  great so I thought why not try the microwave ???

I trimmed them a little and soaked them in water for a bit ...just tossed them on a plastic tray with a little bit of water in it .

Tasty ...Who doen't like kern

 

You can  turn ears over and rearrange after 1/2 cooking time.

Cooking Timetable:
1 ear - 1 1/2 minutes
2 ears - 3 to 4 minutes
3 ears - 5 to 6 minutes
4 ears - 7 to 8 minutes
6 ears - 8 to 9 minutes.
When ears are hot to the touch, remove and wrap in kitchen towel or foil.

Let stand at least 5 minutes. Remove husks and silk (which is easier than when cold) and serve.

Serve with melted butter.

What we have been doing lately is soaking husk and all in water, then wrapping in aluminum foil. Put them on the grill, high away from the heat before you start grilling the meat. They come out great. cooking them in the husk, seals in the flavor. Husking them and boiling is not as flavorful.

That is awesome, I love corn hate cooking it. No more 5 gallon pot of steamy water in the kitchen. I like to freeze a couple dozen small bags so I have fresh corn all year, I’m just saying.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

I should mention that Ken has an old low-powered microwave and his suggested cooking times may be too long for a high powered microwave .

There is a recipe from across the border where you put mayonnaise, lime, Parmesan or better yet queso panela, and sprinkle Tabasco sauce or some hot powder pepper and they taste yummy!

I think I am going to try your microwave method.

I nuke mine for 3 min for one or 4 min for 2.

Btw, thats a cool way of removing the stuff but i like to keep them on so i have something to hold it with. Like the way they serve them at fairs and carnivals.

May want to butter them quickly, they tend lose their heat faster than boiled or roasted corn.

I do not like corn, I don’t even like how it smells |( only pop corn, and a type of bread made with corn made locally which is tastier than wheat one.

i use my popcorn maker

at least 1x per week. no condiments (salt, sugar, sweetener, chili, mustard), nada. love it!!

In a pub here, they add a bit of pepper, sure it is just to make us feel thirsty but it tastes nice, and is healthier than adding tons of salt.

I just tried this and it works pretty well. 4 min is about right in my case (~1kW), but it would vary depending on size of corn in addition to power. Too little time and the kernels are slightly hard (some prefer this); too much and the some of the kernels start to leak/get mushy. Overall very convenient, though, to take advantage of quality super-inexpensive US subsidized corn.
