Step 2: Microwave corn
For 1000 watt microwave, nuke corn for time according to the following table.
Halfway through cooking time, turn ears over and rearrange.
1 ear - 1 1/2 minutes
2 ears - 3 to 4 minutes
3 ears - 5 to 6 minutes
4 ears - 7 to 8 minutes
6 ears - 8 to 9 minutes
For 700 watt oven, use the following table:
1 ear - 2 minutes
2 ears - 4 to 6 minutes
3 ears - 7 to 8 1/2 minutes
4 ears - 8 1/2 to 10 minutes
6 ears - 10 to 12 minutes
Step 3: Wrap it up
Don't worry, it'll still be hot when you unwrap it - trust me.
Also, all of the husk and silk simply slide right off the cooked cob! Much easier than trying to peel it all first.
Step 4: EAT
Season to taste. I like mine plain, but perhaps you're a butter and salt person. I also recommend trying some of the great season-blends on the market these days. Hot sauce is great too!
Serve up with some other fresh, seasonal favorites. I love this with heirloom tomatoes and cucumbers for a light summer meal. Of course, nothing goes better with barbeque (if you have the option!) than hot corn on the cob.
