The things I learn from Pinterest are wonderful. I can’t get enough of that site, which isn’t always a good thing.
Today, I found what I think is an amazing discovery on Pinterest. I found an easier way to clean the corn and I never knew you could steam the corn in the microwave. All these years, I’ve been husking the corn for steaming on the stove.
We are not Foodies shows us how to clean the corn hassle free. It took 35 years to come up with this wonderful concept, but I’m thankful they were willing to share it. Before they cleaned the corn and then steam it in the microwave. Now they put the corn, husk all, into the microwave. They steam the corn in the microwave for at least 3 1/2 minutes. Remember all microwaves are different, so it may take longer or less for some. After steaming in the microwave, remove the corn, cut the bottom and slide out the clean corn.
I can’t wait to get fresh corn on the cob from the Farmer’s Market.
