Microwaved Corn on the Cob

With a brand new baby and all, I'm looking for any and every possible shortcut. Have you ever seen the episode of Seinfeld where Kramer installs a garbage disposal in his shower so he can multi-task? Yeah...I'm totally there.

So when I read an article by The Kitchn about microwaving corn on the cob, I was alllll over it. With late-summer corn filling the farmers market and grocery store, it's the perfect super-speedy side dish. 

Let's get cooking!

Microwaved Corn on the Cob
Serves: 2
Technique from The Kitchn*

2 ears corn on the cob, still in the husk
Butter, for serving
Salt, for serving

First...DO NOT SHUCK THE CORN. Put the entire corn on the cob in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high. Allow the corn to cool for a few minutes so you don't burn your fingers off. Shuck the cooked corn and marvel at how easily all that pesky silk comes off. Ask yourself why you haven't always cooked corn in the microwave. Serve with plenty of butter and salt.
