This method keeps your kitchen cool and saves you from having to painstakingly remove the corn silk. 

Ingredients:
Fresh corn on the cob, in the husk
Butter (optional)
Salt (optional)

Directions:
Place corn, with husks still on, in the microwave. Cook on high: 1 ear 2-4 minutes, 2 ears 6-8 minutes, etc. It varies, depending on your microwave.
With oven mitts on both hands, remove corn from microwave and place on cutting board.
Cut off stem end of each corn ear about 1 inch above where the kernels start.
Hold corn upright by the top end (with the silks) and shake and squeeze until the corn pops out the bottom.
You will have a perfectly cooked, husk- and silk-free ear of corn, ready for butter and salt.
