I have a question about microwaving the corn. Do you soak in water first and roughly for how long? I noticed a wet area when you lifted corn off of board, so am guessing that’s from added water / soaking.
Great idea & I especially love how to cut corn off using a Bundt pan ~ Easy Peasy!
Hi Beth! No need to soak it. The liquid you see is from the steam :)
That was brilliant! I had no idea you could shuck corn that way! I’m totally going to try it!
Thanks for watching, Melissa!
