Corn on the Cob... Fully Cooked in 4 Minutes!

  • Aug 22, 2009

I love corn. It's like the perfect food and has countless uses... like being converted to Ethanol, Plastics, Tortillas... just to name a few.  But did you know that corn is also delicious when eaten?  Yeah, Sweet Corn on the Cob is amazing.

Well, one of the cool tricks I've learned in life is how to cook "Corn on the Cob" in 4 Minutes.  Yes, you heard me right... 4 Minutes!  You may be willing to pay $5, $10, or even $20 (if you're a corn junkie) for this type of information... But today, during my special "4-minute corn" review, I'll show you how, absolutely free.  You heard right... absolutely FREE.  (sorry,  I've been watching way too many infomercials at night! :)

Okay here's what you'll need:

-One head of corn (with the husk removed... basically an uncooked corn on the cob)
-One microwavable plate (ceramics work great)
-One Regular sized sheet of Paper Towel
-One Microwave Oven

Step 1: Wrap a dry sheet of Paper towel completely around the corn.

Step 2: Completely wet the paper towel (that should be already wrapped around the corn)

Step 3: Place the Corn (with the wet paper towel wrapped around it) on a Ceramic Plate.

Step 4: Put the whole thing in the Microwave and Nuke it on High for about 4 Minutes

Step 5: Unwrap the hot (and steamy :)  paper towel off the corn carefully, it will be really hot!

Step 6: Shazam! Your "corn on the cob" should be fully cooked and ready to eat. At this point you can put butter, salt,  or whatever you want.

Step 7: Enjoy! :D

I've eaten lots of corn, but microwaved corn? I'll try it and let u know if it works! In the mean time, you forgot the butter! Yum! It's free for you the first time round ;-)

...Am I lazy for just shoving my corn on the cob straight into the microwave?  This four minute corn wrapped in a paper towel does sound good though, probably locks in more moisture.  Thanks for sharing this guide, and for free, too! :D

P.S. My favorite corn on the cob topping is sliced, sauteed and slightly salted green onions!

THE essential summer barbeque vegetable. Can you honestly picture eating barbeque ribs with asparagus or brussels sprouts? Wonderful when grilled and topped with the traditional salt and melted butter. But make damn sure your supply of dental floss is full.

An unbeatable summer meal with hot melted butter and salt. For a special treat, try it with lemon pepper as well. Just don't forget the toothpicks!

Corn on the cob is still healthier than canned corn, but it's generally quite lacking, and most corn is owned by Monsanto. Ick.

A secret to good sweet corn is to eat it shortly after being picked, otherwise the sugar turns to starch.

Gotta have it grilled, slightly charred, rubbed down with chili mayo and dusted with cotija cheese.

I like eating corn on the cob but it can get messy at times. As a child, I loved eating it whenever I could, but then I got braces and things changed. For about 3 years, eating corn on the cob was quite the task! I had to hold it upright with a fork and "shave" off the corn with a knife. Then, I'd have to scoop up the cooked corn and eat it with a spoon. Talk about complicated!    Corn on the cob is delicious, but as I've gotten older, I have grown less fond of eating things …

About this food


Corn on the cob (known regionally as "pole corn", "cornstick", "sweet pole","butter-pop" and "long maize") is the culinary term for a cooked ear of freshly-picked maize from a cultivar of sweet corn. The ear is picked while the endosperm is in the "milk stage" so that the kernels are still tender. Other varieties (called field corn) are edible as "roasting ears", but are not tender or sweet. Ears of corn are roasted, steamed or boiled, with or without their green husks. The husk leaves are then removed before serving.

Corn on the cob is usually eaten while still warm. It is boiled or grilled. Then it is often seasoned with salt and buttered before serving. Skewers are available to hold the ear while eating, which are thrust into the ends of the cob and allow users to eat corn on the cob without burning the fingers or getting butter and juice on the hands.
