Make sure when you buy or harvest the corn that you leave the silk and husk tips on.

Wow. Nope, never saw that before, and I am an old country boy.

I've cooked corn on the cob in the camp fire. you cook it in the husk, but I never tried that. I will try it.

Yes, that is how we cook ours. But without the banjo music.

The corn tastes like it has been steamed instead of boiled. I haven't found a single strand of silk on the corn I've tried so far. I've been buying corn in the stores so it is not garden fresh but this method just tenderizes it.

The best way is to shuck it right there in the cornpatch, bring it to the house, rinse it, and drop those ears into a pot of boiling water. Less than 30 minutes from the cornstalk to the dinner plate. Just don't get any better than that.

Shucking takes time and energy. This way needs no shucking, no electricity to boil the water and you don't lose the nutrients into the cooking water.

Rusty, did you watch the video (link in the initial post)? After you nuke it you cut off the bottom end and shake the corn from the top and the corn slides out clean as a whistle.

You'll never need to look for another silk.

OMG, I used to do that too!
You can shuck it on the stalk usually, but that sort of seems mean.... OK, maybe I miss my garden a little too much Smile

I did it! It works great!

The only downfall is when you need to cook more corn.

a Dozen ears would just take too long.

But it is great when it is just me and my daughter, cause we can be eating our first ear while our second ears are cooking.

Don't know if any of you have noticed this or not (if you have tried it) but I find I need less butter than when corn is boiled. It also seems to be absorbed into the corn instead of swimming in the corn dish.

My problem is finding corn in the stores that is not pre or partially shucked.
