So, I'm sure I'm the last one on the planet to realize this, but you can microwave corn on the cob in the husk and it's very good.
I had a hamburger ready to eat ( mustard, pickle, and onion) when I remembered the ears of corn in the fridge. No time to boil water, so I turned to the microwave oven.
I snapped off the long stalk end, snipped off the silk and scraggily leaves and tossed an ear in for an experimental 3 minutes and it came out amazing.
Of course that may be because it was Pure Florida corn from Zellwood.
