Best raw right out of the ground. That's how I ate it as a kid from the garden and that's still how I prefer it. No salt, no butter, no modifications.

Put on a paper plate or microwave safe plate and nuke it on high for 3 1/2 to 4 minutes. There ya go; oh yeah, be careful, it will be hot as hell, so let it sit alittle bit before handling.



Variation of this works very well. Leave the corn in the husk. Nuke for three minutes. Cut the bottom of the ear off about 1/4" up the cob. Grab the husk on the other end squeeze the cob out the bottom. Works real slick. Gets all the pesky silk off. Plenty of moisture in the husk to steam the corn. I do it this way when I am doing a ear or two for myself. Any more than that I boil or grill.

A Farmer friend used to say that you need the pot boiling in the field when you pick it. He knew His sweet corn.

Agree 100%!! Just warm it up is all I do. I can rinse it off and eat it right out of the field.

Know fat, know flavor. No fat, no flavor.

I tried going vegan, but then realized it was a big missed steak.

I do sometimes like to cut it off the cob and toss into a skillet with melted butter. Just warm it up and serve. Another variation is to sauté some jalapeño peppers in the pan first.
