Making a snack of Corn on the Cob

There is a huge surplus of corn on the cob or so it appears.  And going cheap.  So I picked some.  And when I thought I would pop it into the pressure cooker like we had it as kids , I found this easy way out.  Steamed corn in 3 minutes flat in the microwave.  Ok maybe not 3, since you would need to cool it a little bit ... about 5 minutes.

Just pop the corn into the microwave.

Heat on high for 3/4 minutes ( if it is just one - preferable to do it one at a time)

Despite the aroma of the corn wafting through the kitchen, resist the impulse to touch the corn.  There would be steam trapped within the husk

Allow to cool.  Pick it up with the help of a kitchen glove.  Slowly peel open - it opens easily now.

And then bite into corn that could very well have been steamed.  If you want to indulge.  Smear a little butter and then dip half a lime into salt and rub that over it too.   And enjoy
