How to cook corn, and make sure no ‘hair’ left when taking off the leaves.

how-to-cook-corn

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.

I have a passion to cook and experiment, and have gathered recipes for almost 50+ years (paper and then electronic). I felt it an absolute waste to just toss all those wonderful recipes in the garbage and forget about them, thus decided to put them to good use and started “The Recipe Hunter” Facebook page: The Recipe Hunter (Cook &Enjoy) and the Blog
