This technique by YouTuber Chef John works like a charm. (Yes, a repost from last year. Because: Corn! Now! )

Been nuking corn for ages. Makes perfect corn. I do 4 minutes per ear. 
It is HOT so get pot holders or mittens

Grew up in Illinois - fabulous corn, esp when straight from the field

After 20 years living in Europe, have yet to have corn here that wasn’t shite

taoofludd Hey, Taoofludd. May I call you Taoo? How are you? Everything good? Hey, look over there! ~points paw offstage to left~

~While Taoo is distracted, Squrlz pulls out the IAB Welcome Wagon, wheels freshly oiled and silent~



WELCOME TO IAB, TAOOFLUDD!

Yes, yes, I know, you've been registered for about a year. But you're way under 50 comments and I don't think you ever got a Welcome Wagon. Thus, this comment.

Two suggestions: (1) Comment more! You're looking at an overcaffeinated squirrel who can't keep his mouth shut. Now, imagine how horrible it is for such an animal to have no one to talk with. Pacing the boards, lonely, dejected. Am I tugging at your heartstrings? Good. (2) Please upload an avatar. Ish lots more fun. Trust me on that. If you have any difficulties with your avatar, just give a holler and I'll be happy to help.

Welcome again to IAB: Have fun, and I hope to see you in the threads soon!

I agree with his point about the microwave, all you need is time and power. My one has so much settings and functions it takes a masters degree just to open the damn door.

Can I microwave it and barbecue it after?

fuad119 Don't see why not. Haven't done it here, but I think it would work just fine. Just reduce the microwave time by a minute. If you're doing multiple ears together (3 or 4), do them all 3 minutes, then additional one minute increments until you can just start to smell the cooked corn from the microwave. (If you have an external vent for the fan, you might need to open the door and stick your squirrel nose in there to gauge how things are coming along.)

squrlz4ever I thought furry tailed rodents could strip an ear of corn with those choppers they have faster than you can say Ankles!

Pretty cool except the very last part - now it taste like butter and salt instead of wonderful corn.

trimble Well, I suppose those additions are optional. The main thing is, this method is easy-easy-easy. I've been doing it for two summers now and love the technique. Once I learned it, the amount of corn I ate in the summers shot up dramatically. *munch* *munch* *munch*

I don't often cook with shallots but when I do; put them in a pan of boiling water for about a minute, remove then squeeze. Pops cleanly out of the skin. Be careful, first time I tried the little bugger bounced all over the kitchen.
