Aw Shucks - A Fast Way to Remove Corn Husks and Silk

Removing the husk and silk from corn can be a pain. The silk never comes completely off, even when you use one of those brushes, and then you're pulling it out of your teeth.

I found this video tip which uses the microwave to create steam between the corn and husk. You then just shake/squeeze the corn and it comes out, silk free. I tried it last night and it worked great! I then grilled the corn, which tasted great slathered with some butter. Try it next time you're going to make some corn!
