Corn Time!

OK...for those who asked for this...(and you know who you are):
Simple way to do corn on the cob in the microwave.

Remove as much silk as you can from the ears, but keep the husks as intact as possible.
Place in microwave and heat on HIGH until corn is tender.
Simple, no?

Rule of thumb: for one ear, about 2.5 minutes seems to work.
Last night I did three, and it took 7 minutes.
Experiment around until you find the right combination that makes the corn done, but not mushy. Then bring out the butter, salt, whatever else you like to put on corn, and knock yourself out. 

And, yeah, I suppose I need to put a caution in here--that when you take the corn out of the microwave, IT'S GONNA BE HOT. As in really, REALLY hot. So handle carefully.

There. The legal department should be happy now. :-)
Have a great cornfest this weekend, no matter what the weather is outside!

More in a bit,
