I put a couple of ears, in the husks, into the microwave and give them 6-8 minutes on high. They will steam in their own moisture. After they're done, cut a half inch to an inch from of the stem end and then with a hot pad, grasp the silk end and shake the ear of corn from the husk. The corn will slip away from the husk and silk easily and you just toss them into the trash. It works so well!

Don't forget - your chickens will love pecking the cobs absolutely clean when you're done!

We roast it on an Indian tawa and rub it with red chili and lime,or we boil it shortly and rub it with lemon and when I was small we used to rub melted butter and salt on it.

This is what I do too

I use a 13X9 Pyrex but mine seem to take 12 to 14 minutes, leave it covered for 4 minutes.

Kosher salt, Fresh ground black pepper & REAL BUTTER

THis sounds really interesting. What is an Indian tawa?

I may also try the idea of placing the corn directing on the oven rack. How long and what temperature works best?

Maybe your wattage is lower. Another poster only needs four minutes!

I'm making corn on the cob today. I'm going to try cooking them in their husks to see how that helps with husking and desilking. And my chickens will get the cobs afterward.

It's always been OK to pick your ears in public!

My cat drags them out of the trash and picks them absolutely clean.
