All You Need to Know About Microwaving Corn on the Cob
How long does take to cook corn in the microwave?
It typically takes around 4-6 minutes per ear of corn to cook in the microwave. To tell when corn on the cob is cooked through, look for plump, juicy kernels and a bright yellow color. You can also test it by piercing a kernel with a fork, it should be tender but not mushy.
Can you cook corn in the husk in the microwave?
Cooking corn in the husk in the microwave is an ultra-seasonal way to enjoy fresh corn. Simply dampen the husk or wrap it in a paper towel and microwave for 4-6 minutes per ear.
How to microwave frozen corn kernels?
Microwaving frozen corn kernels is a breeze! Place them in an Anyday, cover them with the lid, and microwave for 2-3 minutes.
How to freeze microwave corn?
To freeze microwaved corn, first, cook the corn on the cob in the microwave, then cut the kernels off and let them cool. Place them in the Anytime Freezer Trays or freezer bag and freeze them for later use.
Is it better to steam or boil corn in the cob?
As a matter of fact, skip boiling! When you boil corn, some of the good stuff like folate (which is important in the formation of red blood cells) ends up in the water instead of in your belly. So, you'll miss out on those nutritional perks. Steaming it in the Anyday will keep the vitamins and nutrients right where they need to be, in the corn, so that when you eat it you eat wholesomely.
Which one is sweeter, yellow or white corn?
The color of corn doesn't necessarily indicate its sweetness! Corn grown for human consumption (different from that grown for cattle) comes in three main types in the USA: dent corn (used mostly for livestock), flint corn (used mostly for grinding), and sweet corn (best to consume fresh). Sweet corn, which comes in varying levels of sweetness such as normal sugar, sugar enhanced, and super sweet, depends on location and the time of the season. So, no matter the color, enjoy corn all summer long!
How can I prevent grilled corn from drying?
I believe you already have the solution! Start by steaming the corn on the cob in the Anyday to enhance its natural sweetness and plump up those kernels for juicy and tender sweet corn. Then, when everything else is nearly ready, quickly grill the corn for 1-2 minutes on a very hot grill. This will give you deliciously charred, smoky corn that won't stick to your teeth!
