Step 1

Peel some of the outer layers of the husk off your corn, leaving the husk about 2-3 layers deep. Snap off any of the stalk that might be left at the bottom of your corn. Pull all the corn silk off the corn.

Step 2

Place the corn (husk and all) in your microwave. Heat for one minute. Roll the corn over and heat for another minute.

Step 3

Remove from microwave. It will be very hot. Carefully pull back the husk and wash the ear of corn in hot water at your sink, scrubbing thoroughly.

Step 4

Rub the corn with butter. Salt to your taste.
