Corn on the Cob!

jI love corn on the cob and now that summer is here it's time to enjoy this treat. I Just picked up some ears of yellow corn at 25 cents each. The store has a bin full of them with a trash can so you can shuck and throw away the husks. I don't do that because of the way I cook the ears.

I prefer to microwave the ears on high for 9 minutes (4.5 minutes on each side). When the bell dings, I take the ear out and cut off the bottom of the husk and cob just above where the stem and cob meet. Note, use pot holders of oven mitt to prevent burning your hand. With the bottom off, I'll take the ear by the tassels and shake it up and down until the husk is separated from the cob. Doing this also removes most of the corn hair. I'll then cut the tip of the cob off and either use corn holders or push a wooden skewer through the center of the cob. The corn is a golden yellow and nearly falls off the cob.

After that, a little butter and it's ready to eat.

Enjoy. For me it's a starch. Therefore, I can't eat very much. :(
