This one combines two of my favorite things: kitchen tips, and YouTube sensations. Meet Ken. Ken is a highly practical chef whose channel features advice and tips on cooking. In this video, he teaches us how to cook corn without the mess of shucking, and without the difficulty of picking the silky threads from in between the kernels.
Simply place two ears in the microwave (husk and all), and let her rip for 8 minutes. When you're done, cut off the entire backside of the corn and let the cob slip out - perfectly cooked, and completely without silk. We can't wait to try it.
