Fresh Corn On The Cob (Microwave)

Cook fresh corn on the cob in microwave with husks and silk intact.
They will cook in their own natural moisture.

Ingredients
Corn on the cob — fresh and with silk and husk intact

Instructions
Place on paper towel. Turn ears over and rearrange after 1/2 cooking time.

Timing:
1 ear – 1 1/2 minutes
2 ears – 3 to 4 minutes
3 ears – 5 to 6 minutes
4 ears – 7 to 8 minutes
6 ears – 8 to 9 minutes.

When ears are hot to the touch, remove and wrap in kitchen towel or foil.

Let stand at least 5 minutes. Remove husks and silk (which is easier than when cold) and serve. (I used a couple kitchen towels to hold the corn and grab the husks since they were quite hot)
