I use raw corn frequently as part of a corn salad, along with avocado, tomato (preferably grape tomatoes, cut in half), red onion, a small squish of garlic from a press, lots of fresh lime juice, salt, a little olive oil and cilantro or basil. Trust me, it's incredibly good (we prefer cilantro).

For those who like it hot, add a little chopped fresh jalapeno. Can also add red pepper, if you want.

You must have missed it. I've gotten some fabulously sweet, delicious fresh corn this season. I think we live near each other and may shop in the same place. Maybe I took the best ones each time before you got there?

I just trim down any silk that is protruding and put them as is into the microwave. I usually make 2 ears at a time and they take 6-8 minutes to cook.

Raw corn makes a great salad ingredient and a wonderful raw soup. Just whizz it in the blender with a spot of black pepper and some water. Don't make my mistake -- strain before you sip, otherwise you'll be chewing your cud all the livelong day.

Cook it as you normally would. Put it into water, bring to a boil and let boil for 1-3 minutes depending on your prefered level of doneness. I prefer just one because I like it as fresh and crisp as I can get.
