Corn On The Cob

Corn on the cob in only four minutes?

This little trick is great for the cottage when time and water may be in short supply.

Corn On The Cob At The Cottage

If you have a microwave at the cabin you can make delicious corn on the cob in four minutes. This handy “recipe” was shown to our editor by a couple of cottage neighbours last summer. Andrew didn’t believe it would work so well, but once he tasted it, he was hooked.

Steps for Preparing Corn on the Cob

Corn on the cob step 1Cut the tassel off the end of the corn.
Place the corn with the husk still on it in the microwave.
Set the timer for four minutes and cook the corn on high.

Corn on the cob step 2
Once the corn has cooked for four minutes, carefully remove it from the microwave and cut off the stump at the thick end.

It will be very hot so you may want to use an oven mitt or a towel.

Corn on the cob step 3

Holding the corn vertical on the plate or table, peel off the husk. It should come off the corn quite easily.
Add your butter, margarine, or salt as you like and enjoy a wonderfully cooked corn on the cob.


This recipe is fast, easy and much less involved than the traditional method of cooking the corn in a pot of boiling water. Try it out the next time you plan to have corn with your meal at the cabin.
