    A neat trick. Had not removed the tusk that way, but have been cooking corn in the microwave for the past few years.

    How do you cook corn in the microwave and have it come out tasty? I would love to have a good recipe.

    I've done it just the way that guy does, but you want to check for any worm evidence first. If you only want a cob or two the micro is very easy.

    You leave the husk on it- and cut both ends off- then just microwave it- and pull husk off

    It comes out perfect- the key is to cut both ends off and leave the husk on before microwaving

    On my microwave- you just hit vegitable and it selects how long and high to cook it

    In my medium power microwave, it's about 6 - 7 minutes.

    You can actually look at it.....cooked has a more yellow color.

    I go along with the 8 as well. Ive been cooking corn on the cob with the husk on that way in the micro for over 8 years. Summers over and so is the corn on the cob. I did just learn about the cutting of the bottom for silk free corn. I'll try that next summer!!! But the silk is not much of a problem after its cooked one way or another. break em all Jeff

    We butter and wrap the cleaned cob in wax paper and do it in the m/wave, have been doing so for several years. How long will depend on how many at once and the power of the m/wave. Not rocket science; test with a feel and keep track for the first few and you'll figure it out.....breakemall
