6earsUnshucked corn on the cob (husks and silk still in tact)
With the husks still fully sealed, rinse the corn to remove any dirt. Trim excess silk from the top with kitchen shears.
Place corn, still in the husks, in the microwave. Make sure the turntable can still spin. I can usually get up to 6 ears in my microwave, but size and space will vary. You may need to do this in batches.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes per ear, or 2 1/2 minutes per ear if you plan to grill.
Carefully remove corn from the microwave and transfer to a cutting board. It will be very hot.
Slice the bottom ends off with a sharp or serrated knife, and gently squeeze the silk end. The corn should easily slide out. If it doesn't, check to make sure you have completely sliced off the husk at the end.
Serve hot, with butter and salt for flavor.
Butter and salt the corn, then place microwaved corn with the husks removed on a hot grill (set to medium-high temperature). Grill for about 5-7 minutes, turning a few times to ensure even charring.
Serve hot and with additional butter and salt if desired.
