1. Leave corn in the husks (or remove just the soiled outermost husks) and place on a microwave-safe plate or paper towel. Turn ears over and rearrange after 1/2 cooking time (see cooking time chart below).
Microwave cooking time:
1 ear - 1 1/2 minutes 2 ears - 3 to 4 minutes 3 ears - 5 to 6 minutes 4 ears - 7 to 8 minutes 6 ears - 8 to 9 minutes.
2. Let stand 5 minutes. Use a mitt to hold the ear of corn, and remove husks and silk. (I found the husks and silk come off even easier then when the ears are cold.)
