Here's the basic technique: Cut off the stalk of each ear about one inch above the last row of kernels and microwave for two to four minutes. Holding the uncut end, shake and squeeze the husk until the corn slides out. The microwave creates just enough steam to allow the kernels to separate from both the husk and the silk. It sounds too easy to be true, but you can see it in action in the video above.
Have you ever tried this method? Do you have any tips or tricks for shucking corn?
