The Easiest Way to Microwave Corn on the Cob
- 1 ear of corn, husk on
**These instructions are for one ear of corn. If you want to microwave more than one ear at a time, increase the cooking time by 2 minutes for every additional ear of corn, depending on the power of your microwave and the size of your ears of corn. You may need to experiment to find the right time for your microwave.**
1. Place the corn in the microwave, do not remove the husk. Microwave the corn on the high setting for 4 minutes. Note that every microwave is different. If this timing over-cooks the corn in your microwave, reduce it to 2 to 3 minutes the next time.
2. Use a kitchen towel or pot holder to remove corn from the microwave (it’s hot!) Cut off the bottom of the corn, stem end, about one row of corn in from the stem.
3. Slip off the husk and silk.
