Love fresh corn on the cob, but hate all the annoying silk strands that are almost impossible to remove? Well I have the best tip to share with you today. I don't know where this kitchen hack has been my whole life, but I absolutely love it.
Simply microwave an unshucked ear of corn for about 5 minutes.
Be careful - it'll be very hot.
Carefully cut all the way through the cob, about 1/2-inch from the stem end.
The grab the silk end of the shuck and gently shake the cob right out.
There you go. Perfectly shucked corn without a single silk in sight. Perfect every time.
