The Easiest Corn You’ll Ever Cook (Microwaved Perfection)

I have a confession to make.

I love corn.  There, I said it.  It’s not that I want to love corn – I don’t, really – but I just can’t help myself.  So it’s a little starchy.  And perhaps it’s a little high in sugar compared to some (okay, most) other veggies.   I care not!  Corn, I love you.

Here’s the problem:  I hate cooking corn.  Wait, that’s a lie.  I hate preparing corn.  Living in Indiana as an adolescent meant that a great deal of my friends spent their summers detasseling corn to make some scratch.  Not this girl.  That was far too manual-labor-y for me.  You don’t even want to know the levels of “lazy” I achieved in high school.  While I’m no longer lazy, I’m still uninterested in completing approximately 234,460 steps to get to some perfect corn.  What’s a corny girl to do?

As famous ginger Foodie Bobby Flay will readily tell you, you can grill corn.  But hey, he’ll tell you you can grill ANYTHING.  Grilling is great.  But for me, grilling corn is a pain.  I don’t have the patience or the correct timing.  Plus, I’m really good at starting corn husk fires – even if I soak my cobs before I grill.  So that’s out.

Could you boil the corn?  Absolutely.  Food Network makes it seem so simple.  All you need is boiling water, corn, and 10 minutes.  I’m not buying what they’re selling.  You have to wait for the water to boil.  You have to adjust the cooking time depending on the size of your corn (yes, you do).  You have to husk it when it’s finished cooking.  No thanks, to all of that.

I’m a simple girl.  I like simple things.  I like perfectly cooked corn that only takes 4 minutes to cook and requires no “shucking” effort.  In honor of my culinary simplicity, I wanted to resurrect a corny demonstration I did for you.  Check out the video below and prepare to change your perfect-corn-in-four-minutes life.  The best part?  All you need is your corn on the cob (no husking necessary!), a microwave, a towel or oven mitt, a knife, and an appetite.  Time to get your corn on!

P.S. Yes, I’m aware it is not currently June.  Resurrection means this video already existed and I’m bringing it back.  Just like I brought sexy back.  What?  That wasn’t me?
