A great quick and easy way for a delicious corn on the cob.


  • Whole Fresh Corn on the Cob
  • Butter
  • Kosher or Sea Salt and Fresh Cracked Black Pepper to taste

Optional Flavor toppings:

  • grated parmesan cheese
  • garlic salt
  • onion salt
  • paprika
  • fresh dried herbs


  1. Place the whole corn with husks-on in the microwave. Don't remove the husks! They hold in the steam and add great flavor too. Microwave the corn on high heat for about 4 minutes.
  2. Carefully remove the corn from the microwave using a kitchen towel. The corn will be hot! Cut off the stem end of the corn making sure you cut into at least one row of corn from the stem.
  3. Squeeze the top of the husk to push out the whole corn. It should slip out pretty easy but if it doesn't, try using a fork on the cut-end to help pull it out.
  4. Add butter, salt pepper and other optional flavor toppings. Enjoy!
