I must admit this has become my sole recipe whenever there is a family get-together. Oh, yes, I once stood over the grill turning each delicate ear with tongs until they had beautiful grill marks on each. Who needs this with all the tidbits going on in our life each day?
Now I throw three ears of corn in the microwave while setting the table and cutting the grilled meats.
3 ears of corn, husk on
Place the corn in the microwave, do not remove the husk. Microwave the corn on the high setting for 4 minutes.
Use a kitchen towel or pot holder to remove corn from the microwave (it's hot!) Cut off the bottom of the corn, stem end, about one row of corn in from the stem.
Slip off the husk and silk. Repeat with remaining corn.
