    Y'know, some of us never thought corn-shucking was rocket science to

    No. It certainly isn't rocket science, but it had never occurred to me
    that there was a method to get rid of the husk and silk so easily.

    I don't find removing the husks and silk to be particularly difficult
    after nuking the cobs, husk on. You can use a kitchen towel if the ear
    is too hot for your hands.

    But it's rather silly and wastes good corn. Besides, I never cook
    corn in the microwave and think 8 minutes is way too long.

    I don't cook corn in the microwave either. If I have corn on the cob it
    is most likely to be grilled... in the husk. I have to wonder if the
    same method can be used for grilled corn.

    It is a cute technique. I'll give it a go next corn season.

    I don't grill corn very often anymore, but when I want to replicate
    the flavor, I roast them (unhusked) in the oven and the silk is no
    problem for me either. Plus I don't have to cut off one end and waste
    all that corn.

    I've posted about removing corn silks by microwaving several times, at
    least once even twice every year, I'm sure I did this past corn
    season. Anyone who has ever nuked corn in the husk would know that
    the silks come right off with the husks... makes me wonder about some
    folks... even if folks claim they don't read my posts from browsing
    this thread there sure are a lot more keyboard kooks than I had
    thought... a whole lot more.

    How do you roast them? Peel them back and butter them then cover again?
    I'm interested in how you do this (so I can, too).

    Nothing that fancy. I like to believe I'm doing something special up
    by running them under water (silk end up) and getting a little
    moisture under the husk, but that's probably all in my mind. I heat
    the oven to 400-450 and put them in for a few minutes. The timing is
    like you'd do on the grill. When the outside of the husk starts to
    brown and you smell "corn", it's done. Timing is between 5-10 minutes
    depending on your true oven temp.

    As have I. I've been nuking corn now for a good 15 years or more and
    silk became a non-issue/problem at that time. I run them under cold
    water to husk them but the cob retains enough heat to quickly re-heat
    the kernels to butter melting temps in a few seconds.

    Some people are set in their ways. Pre-husk the raw corn, struggle to
    get all the darned silk off, then boil the corn to death and cook all
    the flavor out.

    Nuking them in the husk eliminates the silk with no fancy tricks (just
    peel the husks off as usual without cutting the end off) and leaves them
    plenty hot to eat.

    Nuking in the husk also gets you more tender, moister, sweeter corn.

    Frankly, I've never had any trouble removing silk from raw corn. It
    only takes a matter of seconds. Where do these myths come from?

    Four minutes per ear??!!! With fresh corn, one is enough. Two if you
    like it overdone. His corn must be at least a week past cooking. You
    don't need to cut off so much of the cob, either, but it does make it
    a bit easier.

    I'd say 2 minutes is just about right but the corn should rest covered
    for 5-10 minutes.
