We held off a couple of days and today we finally
cooked microwaved the corn. I used the technique posted on Duke’s blog, Down Range Report; http://downrangereport.blogspot.com/2012/06/neat-trick-cooking-corn.html
I took two corn ears still in their husks, placed them in the microwave, set the timer for 8 minutes (4 minutes if you’re only microwaving 1 ear), and pressed the start button. When finished, take corn out with hot pads, cut the end off and shake the open end of the husk over a plate and voila, your corn will pop out totally cooked and without any silk…..
The end result; I shook the corn husks over the plate more than 3 or 4 times, the corn came out clean and hot. Bulldog Man and I came across just two or three strings of silk while eating. Would I cook my corn this way again, sure. Why you ask???? Because to cook the corn by steaming it or boiling it, the kitchen heats up and I really don’t want to heat the house any more than it is with the extreme temperatures outside.
|Don't look at my messy storage!!! See the corn is cooking :-)|

|Perfectly cooked corn, yum!!!|
