Easiest-Ever Way to Shuck Corn
The microwave makes shucking corn a cinch.
Removing the husk and silk from an ear of corn is a chore, and a “corn de-silker” gadget that we tested proved to be a bust. But now we’ve found a better way: A short stint in the microwave and a quick shake are all it takes to cleanly slide off the corn husk and silk. The cob will heat up a bit, but the kernels won’t be cooked.
