I want to thank the person who told us about a really easy way of cooking corn on the cob by actually putting the cob into the microwave exactly as you buy it, without peeling it or pulling off all those stringy bits. It has completely changed the way I cook corn on the cob and made it so much easier. In my microwave it takes 5 minutes 30 seconds to produce the perfectly cooked cob. Those stringy bits all pull off early in one swift tug and then I just peel back the leaves from around the cob and I have a ready hand cold which isn't too hot to hold and my corn ready to eat. Thank you.
