Corn on the cob in the microwave

I would rather make corn on the cob in the microwave than on the stove, especially when the burners are occupied with other things.

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Husk and rinse 4 ears of corn.
Place corn in a microwave-safe baking dish.
  (no need to add water)
Cover. I use plastic wrap.
Microwave on high for 7 to 10 minutes.

For 2 ears: microwave 4 to 6 minutes.
For 6 ears: microwave 9 to 12 minutes.

For the photo above, I added butter and rosemary. 

Pretty isn't it?

We've grilled it, too, right in the husks.

How do you prepare corn on the cob?


  1. We had our first ears from the garden tonight. Next time I will try the microwave, And the rosemary/butter route.

    1. Oh...I envy you! Corn from your own garden--yum! Have a lovely day.
