I just love fresh corn. Did you know you can make fresh corn in the microwave still in the husk? It’s so easy to do!

This is a perfect side dish for so many things from burgers to chicken and more!

What ingredients do you need to make fresh corn in the microwave?

You basically just need one ingredient – corn!

But, you could also use some butter, salt, and pepper for taste.

How do you make fresh corn in the microwave?

This is so easy, you won’t believe you’ve never done this before! Wash the outside of the corn and pat it dry.

Place it on a microwave-safe plate and cook on HIGH for 4 minutes. Now…I have a 1500-watt microwave, so with a microwave with less power you may need a longer time. (You can get my Microwave Conversion Chart up above at the very top of this blog!)

When it’s done, remove the corn from the microwave. Be careful, it will be hot!

Cut the ends off and remove the husks.

Then, top with butter, salt and pepper, as desired!

Now you’re ready to dig into a fresh ear of corn!
