Summer Shares with Chef Benito…

I’m not a big fan of cooking in a microwave. Besides an occasional bag of microwave popcorn, its typically left to heating leftovers. In the case of cooking corn on the cob it’s the perfect tool.

Leave the corn it in its husk. After 4 minutes on high, you remove the corn from the microwave, cut off the bottom, grab the top and squeeze out the cob. Perfectly cooked corn with no mess!

Cooked this way, the corn steams in its own juices and absorbs flavor from the husks, resulting in a wonderful, undiluted corn taste. You don’t even need butter! (But don’t let me stop you…)
