Ingredients:

  • 6 ears corn
  • Butter or buttery spread of choice or Garlic Butter, for serving (optional)

Instructions:

    To Microwave:
  1. If the corn does not fit in your microwave, slice off some of the bottoms.
  2. Place ears of corn in the microwave. Cook on high for 4 minutes per ear, a total of 12 minutes for 3 ears. Repeat with remaining ears of corn.

  8. Preheat the grill for the meat you are cooking.
  9. The last 15 minutes of cooking the meat, place the cobs in their husks on the grill.
  10. Cook for 10 - 15 minutes or until the kernels become tender.
  11. Remove the husks and serve with butter and salt, to taste.
