Corn on the Cob Made in Minutes

August 23, 2017

Hello friends.  I love eating corn on the cob and back in the middle of June, I did a blog post on making corn on the cob in the crock pot.  To see that blog post, it can be found here.  

Well one of my blog buddies, Linda from Life and Linda, left me a comment saying this:

Hi Julie, it is always great to find different ways to cook food. i haven't tried that one yet, but i always appreciate more helpful hints. I also use the microwave with wax paper. 1-2 minutes each in the microwave does wonders.

I did not know I could make the corn on the cob in the microwave oven!  

I decided to try it out, and boy does it just taste delicious and it cooks so fast.  I have been cooking my corn on the cob, in a large pot filled with water, then cooking it for about 20 minutes in boiling water until done.

Wow, I wish I had known about this years ago.  If you read this Linda, thanks so much for this easy way to cook corn on the cob.  I also want to thank you for all of your help with the recipe generator.  I  love the way this recipe looks!

  3. It is a great and very quick way to make corn on the cob!

  4. Hello Julie, My Mother used to cook it in the microwave, I need to try this, thanks so much. The corn looks fabulous... M-mmm good

  5. This is a great way to make corn! It can be so hard to tell, or even test when it is done!

  6. You can also wrap the ear of corn in a wet paper towel and zap in the micro too. I've did mine this way for years. Will have to give the wax paper a try.

  7. I had no idea about the microwave either! I will have to try that for sure. Maybe this weekend. Thanks!

  8. I've been microwaving my corn on the cob for years and it is so quick and easy, not to mention delicious since it doesn't get soggy. :) Hope you are doing well and having a lovely Sunday!

    Hugs, Vicky

  9. I do this all the time, and just leave it in the husk, but cook it for 4 min per ear. Then all you have to do is cut the base off at it's widest part, hold the other pointed end of the corn by the silks and shake it back and forth and the corn will slide right out! I hate to see corn season coming to an end :(

  10. I cook my corn in the microwave, too, Julie, but I leave it in the husks, like Jenna. I cut the end off first, before putting in the microwave. The husks and silk just come off so easily.

  11. I have never thought of this! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home.
