Thanks for all of the birthday love, everybody!! I had a great day.
Back when Michelle came to visit, I fixed corn on the cob using my microwave. Although Michelle had never seen corn cooked that way, it's the only way I do it! It's fast and keeps your kitchen blessedly cool. Start out by shucking and cleaning your corn. Don't worry about drying them off; you want a little bit of moisture left on the ears.
You will need one piece of wax paper for each ear of corn. The paper needs to be a little bit longer than your corn. Place your corn on one corner of the wax paper...
...and roll it up! Twist the ends of the paper like a Tootsie Roll.
I put my corn on the side of the paper that feels more papery, with the waxy side on the outside.
Put your corn in the microwave. I like to use a plate, but you don't have to. If you are cooking more than two ears of corn, arrange them like the spokes of a wagon wheel.
Microwave on high. Start with one minute per ear of corn and then check; I like to gently squeeze each ear to find out if it's still really hard and needs more time. I think two ears for Mr. W and me usually takes about four minutes total.
Carefully unwrap and then season with butter, salt, pepper, whatever you like!
Yum...that's summer goodness right there!
