a quick way to do corn!

We just learned this technique from friends and have changed it a little and are so happy to have a new way to do this little side!
We pull down the husks most of the way to clean and remove silks...then put husks back up and use a small piece to tie closed.  Place in microwave (can put multiple ears in at a time) and cook 5-6 minutes an ear.  We have also done it where we season with a little sat and pepper, and butter before closing the husks and cooking.  Delicious!
(above served with grilled fish and black beans/rice, and generously buttered by one of my boys!)
