An old friend passed her method for cooking corn on the cob to me years ago. I've assumed that "everyone" knew about it until I discovered that it was a revelation to my new friends. We get the best sweet corn in Colorado from Olathe during the summer, and this is a good way to avoid heating up your kitchen or firing up the grill. —JanetFL
Remove the corn husks and silk from the ears of corn. Rinse under cold water and shake off excess water. Wrap each ear in waxed paper and microwave on high for one minute per ear. Serve as is with butter, or remove the corn kernels from the cobs into a serving dish and add in butter.
