Cut off the top/head of the corn.
Microwave – I do not cook it any other way.
2 ears for approximately 4-5 minutes, 1 for say 2 minutes, depending on the strength of your microwave.
Remember to add a good splash of water in your bowl, put on the lid and then in the microwave.
Do not over cook , rather add an extra 30 seconds at the end as needed.
This will all depend on the size of the corn, the amount you do in a single batch and your microwave. This is only a guideline.
Now let it cool a bit, you do not want to burn your hands, then grab it at the pointy end, and squeeze and voila, the leaves and hair will not stick to your corn.
I have now done it a number of times, to make sure that it does work, and yes it’s so easy, so give it a try.
