Corn on the cob is a great treat for the season. Here is a little trick to prepare corn on the cob with no shucking and silk free. This tutorial shows how to do it with microwave, but the same trick works for boiling or steaming corns.
The key is to leave the corn in the husk. After microwave, boiling, or steaming, cut off the large end of the ear, then grab the husk at the small end, and squeeze the ear of corn out the other side. Even though you will lose a row or two of kernels, this technique works like a charm and make your corn virtually silk free every time.
