This is the simplist way to clean and cook fresh corn on the cob.
Just pop them in the microwave as they come. Cook 1 ear about 3 minutes, 2 ears 6 minutes and I did the 3 ears 8 minutes.
Cut off the stem end, making sure to cut into the cob. You might even cut off a little of the corn.
Grab the tassel end of the corn and squeeze the cob out.
