An Easier Way to Husk Corn

By Rachel Mount

Corn on the cob season is terrific. Husking those corn cobs? Not so terrific. (In fact, I usually beg someone else to do it.) But then along comes Ken on youtube, and he has a magic trick: nuke unhusked corn cobs in the microwave for 6 to 8 minutes, chop off the bottom, and the corn slides out of the husk, silk and all. You won’t even need to floss afterwards!
