How to cook corn on the cob in a microwave
To prepare corn cob to cook in the microwave, all you have to do is cut the leaves and any remaining stalk off the top and bottom of the cob.
Leave the other leaves of the husk around the corn cob before placing in the microwave.
To cook corn on the cob in the microwave all it takes in 90 seconds on high.
After it has finished cooking carefully remove it from the microwave (it will be piping hot!), and peel the leaves away from the corn cob. I usually use a clean dish towel to hold it while I do this as the corn cob will be very hot.
