Another "I want to not forget this"... A friend at work told me you can cook corn on the cob in the microwave. It works well, I like the method. Here's how: Leave the corn in the husk. Cut off the hard bottom 'stalk stump'. Cook on high for 2 - 5 minutes depending on size of ear (maybe more like 3 - 5). Let sit in microwave several minutes. Remove and peel away the husk. I think it peels away much eaiser than when un-cooked -- it falls away nicely and the stringy things are wilty and stick together more, making less of a mess.
I like to cut the corn off the cob. I have to let it sit for a while longer to cool enough that I can grasp the ear to cut the corn off. Holds its heat!
