It must be corn season, seeing we've been eating corn on the cob almost every night, and Alexis' delicious post on Mexican corn. Now that we have an infant, and try to get dinner on the table in a half hour, we've learned some new tricks. Here's a great go-to for weeknight dinners. Super quick and no-mess.
What's in it
2 ears of corn on the cob
How it's made
Grab 2 ears of corn, and do not husk them. Stick them in the microwave on high for 8 minutes.* Take them out with an oven mitt and let cool a few minutes. Take a sharp chef's knife and cut the bottom of the corn off, 1 inch from the stalk. Grab the corn from the top (where the corn silk is) and shake the corn out. Husk and silk come clean off with no mess.
*If you want to just do one corn, microwave for 4 minutes.
If my written directions are not clear, you can see this video. Actually you should watch this video anyways because this man is so sweet.
