Summer is the season for corn on the cob. Here is the easiest and quickest way to cook your corn on the cob. Place the corn still in the husk on a microwave safe plate; no need to remove the husk or silk. Cook the corn in the microwave for four to five minutes. After removing the corn from the microwave cut off the shank. Next push the corn through the end which has been cut off the shank portion. This may take some patience but, once you get it started, the corn slides out easily. Lastly, enjoy your corn on the cob.
