Microwaved Corn on the Cob

I doubt if this post is blog worthy, but I recently learned this on Tik Tok. Yes, I watch Tik Tok videos and I learn a lot.  Some things work out and some things don't. Some things are gross and some are not. It was a struggle at first because of my age. I got mostly videos of old people having Alzheimer's or dying of Cancer. It was not a good thing for me. I soon learned I could change my algorithm. I started searching for recipes, fun hacks or crafty projects. It changed what was presented to me most of the time. If I'm not interested I just scroll on.  

I promised after my last two blogs, which were a little heavy, I would write something more lighthearted. I also don't want to forget how to do this. 

Right now is the beginning of corn on the cob season.  I usually don't buy corn because husking it is a pain and cooking for one person isn't worth the time.  I have microwaved it, but I still have to husk it and getting off the corn silk isn't fun for me.  I have tried all the helpful hints to remove it, but it is still annoying.  I know you can buy ready to cook corn on the cob but there are at least 4 in a package, and it gets stale a lot quicker already husked.

This is what I learned.

1.  Take a cob of unhusked corn.

 2.  Put it in the microwave.

3.  Microwave for 4 minutes, remove from microwave and cut off the stalk end.

4,  Squeeze the fully cooked corn out of it's husk.

5.  The corn is cooked perfectly and ready to eat.  Almost no silk, I see one little piece on mine.  

No muss and No fuss. Now I know some of my readers are going to mention a "what if". What if there is a worm in the corn? That hasn't happened to me but which is worse, removing a live wriggly worm or a fully cooked one? Just cut that part off.
