Since Dale posted about his sweet corn harvest, I wanted to share with you guys a way to cook your corn fast and easy and it will remove all the silk. I visited my Mom last week and she cooked some this way, so it really works. The thing that Ken doesn't tell you is it takes 4 minutes for each ear of corn you put in the micro-wave .The other thing we found out was to have a pan of warm water ready to the corn in if you fix more then you are going to eat immediately, it won't prune up in the water, but will in the open air. Try it and you will like it I, we sure did...

Make sure you cut off the first couple rows of corn when you cut, that will make it easy to get out of the husk..

How long did it take him to glue all the silk to the husk like that? :rofl2:

Looks like a great way to do it, I'll have to try it in a month. Tell Ken we said thanks!

Fascinating! I'll have to try that, but I've got 6 to feed! Be hard to get that much corn ready at one time. Just tonight I've been blanching our excess corn so it can be frozen. It seems like we got an awful lot out of just a small patch, and before the first planting had been completely harvested, the second planting came in. Should be several more weeks now before the next batch comes in, so I can give this a try later.

Howard, If your micro-wave is big enough, put 6 ears in and set the timer for 24 minutes. Sit back and wait. You'll like it.

Saw that and tried it and it works great. The only difference is mine had spots on the tips where the worms or bugs ate some of the corn first. Looked closely.........no worms or bugs left to add protein. .

I'll have to give that a try! Thanks for the video!
I'm surprised you didn't try smoking some corn with your new smoker :bigrofl: Just remember to smoke it good, go half throttle for 15 minutes, If you give to much throttle the corn will cook to fast and smell like burnt oil. :bigrofl: :bigrofl:

Thanks for the tip on the new way to cook corn. I usually soak the husk and all in cold water for a half hour and put it on the grill and cook till its done.

Anytime!! :laughingteeth: I was going to keep going and say to make sure you drain the engine oil first, then replace with corn oil.

Laughter is the best medicine!
