Wow – I LOVE corn on the cob. Grilled right on the BBQ is my favorite, but here is a faster alternative – and tastes much better than boiling! From Lifehacker:
Summer is here and sweet corn is in season. If you enjoy eating corn on the cob, now is the best time of the year to eat corn nearly every day. You can even enjoy fresh corn on the cob at work by covering the corn with wet paper towels and cooking in your microwave.
Culinary weblog Chow shares that you can easily cook corn in the microwave by first removing the husk and silk from the corn, wrapping the ear in a wet paper towel, and microwaving it for no more than five minutes. Let the ear cool down and enjoy!
