Corn on the Cob

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!
