As my second post for corn week, I’ve chosen to give my grandma’s recipe for cooking corn in the microwave. For the last few years, I’ve lovingly referred to my grandma as “The Microwave Queen,” because she cooks everything in the microwave. Not only is cooking corn in the microwave faster, but it also uses less energy than boiling it and there is less water wasted. Not to mention, you don’t have to clean a big pot!
Here are the simple directions. Husk two ears of corn and place them in a microwave safe dish. Sprinkle a little bit of water over them to keep them from drying out. Microwave for 4 minutes. (Time will vary depending on your microwave).
