How To Cook Corn In The Microwave?

Cooking corn in the microwave is simple and it doesn’t take long. All you need to get started is your choice of corn, such as frozen corn, canned corn, or fresh corn. The only supplies you’ll need are paper towels, microwaveable bowls, salt, pepper, ham chips, onions, and butter, if you want to add some flavor. Within 10 minutes, you can have microwaveable corn.

Frozen Corn on the Cob

1. Purchase some frozen microwaveable corn on the cob. It’s already done, so when you put it in the microwave, it won’t take too long.
2. Wash the corn off in cold water to get rid of some of the frozen ice. You can also place the corn in some cold water in the sink and let it set for about five to ten minutes, so when you get ready to cook it, it won’t take too long.
3. Fill a microwaveable bowl with some water and place all of the corn in the bowl.
4. Cook on high for seven minutes.
5. Check to see if the corn is done by sticking a fork in it. You can also take one corn out to see if it’s still cold on the inside. If it is, cook for five more minutes.
6. Drain corn after microwaving and serve with melted butter.

Fresh Corn on the Cob

1. Wrap corn in a damp paper towel and place in the microwave.
2. Cook on high for a minute and a half for one ear of corn. If you cook two ears, cook for three to four minutes; three ears for five to six minutes; four ears for seven to eight minutes; and six ears for eight to nine minutes.
3. Remove paper towel when the corn is too hot to touch. Place foil around the corn.
4. Cool for five minutes and then remove the husks and serve with butter.

Canned Corn

1. Open a can of corn and place in a microwaveable bowl. Don’t drain.
2. Add a pinch of salt and pepper for taste. You can also add some ham chips and onions for a spicier taste.
3. Cover bowl, so that all of the flavors can get inside of the corn.
4. Cook on high for five to seven minutes.
5. Cool for one minute before removing.
6. Drain half of the water and place butter on your corn.
