How To :: Quicky Corn

Teacher: Please raise your hand if you hate shucking corn and picking silk.

Class: [raising hands] Me! Me!

Teacher: Then do I have a tip for you!


{Thank you for appeasing my inner theater geek… ha!}

This cooking tip comes from dear old dad, who read it somewhere or other, and wasn’t quite sure if it would actually work, so we did a science experiment {because I was sure it would work – I microwave sweet potatoes – so I was certain the starch in the corn would cook}, and lo and behold, it worked!

{Please bring that teacher back for a lesson on correcting horrendous run-on sentences.}

So here’s what you do…

  1. Place corn in microwave, husks and all.
  2. Microwave for 5 minutes.
  3. Cut off the larger end of the corn {caution :: this ‘ish is hot}
  4. Squeeze out corn cob and enjoy! Husk and silk free!


Could that not be easier?

Seriously clean corn.

Teacher: Okay class, for your homework, try this out at your next barbeque for quick, no mess, fresh and juicy side dish.

Have a great weekend!


And don’t forget!  You still have time to enter the contest for a free kitchen scale!

  1. Ahh!! So clever!! I usually remove the husks at the grocery, standing over a trash can like a mad woman. It’s alright. Better than bringing home mess! But this is better!
