Step 1: To Start Off, You Need to Cook the Corn.

Cook in the microwave for 4 minutes.

Add an extra minute for each cob of corn you’re cooking.

Step 2: Now That the Corn Is Cooked, All You Have to Do Is Cook Off the End With a Knife.

Holding the top of the corn squeezes out the cob of corn.

By doing it this way all the hair is held at the top and the corn comes out nice and clean.

Push a skewer into the base of the corn.
