How to Microwave Corn on the Cob

Here's a technique that is really worth a try. I've had some delicious vegetables cooked in the microwave -- the perfect balance between cooked and crispy.  You will have to experiment to find the right timing for your particular microwave.  After a couple of experiments, I predict that you  might never again boil a big pot of water to cook corn.

Click below and enjoy the season's fresh corn without heating up the kitchen.
