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 Chef John on youtube, and he has a magic trick: nuke unhusked corn cobs in the microwave for 3 minutes per each ear, chop off the bottom, and the corn slides right out of the husk, silk and all. You won’t even need to floss afterwards!
