I love this method because it’s so fast and the silk slides off the kernels much more easily!


  • 34 freshly picked ears of corn
  • Butter, salt, etc.


  1. Place the ears of corn in the microwave with the husk intact. Cook for 3-4 minutes, and then allow to sit for an additional 3 minutes.
  2. Using the corn silk tassel, pull back the husk and remove the silk.
  3. Butter, salt, and enjoy!
