A basket of sweet corn, three ears partially husked

Cook fresh corn on the cob in microwave with husks and silk intact. They will cook in their own natural moisture, and taste really yummy. Here’s how:

Cooking Timetable:

  • 1 ear – 1 1/2 minute
  • 2 ears – 3 to 4 minutes
  • 3 ears – 5 to 6 minutes
  • 4 ears – 7 to 8 minutes
  • 6 ears – 8 to 9 minutes.

Place on dampened paper towel.
Turn ears over and rearrange after 1/2 cooking time.

When ears are hot to the touch, remove and wrap in kitchen towel or foil. Let stand at least 5 minutes.

Remove husks and silk (which is easier than when cold) and serve with melted butter.

And how about this? Scientists have developed a cure for zombie cockroaches… I guess because we need more of them? Or is it because there really will be a zombie apocalypse and we’re going to need the cure for ourselves? And is it wasps who will turn us into zombies? Or scientists experimenting with them? I don’t know… what do you think?

Here’s a video:

Watch how jewel wasps turn cockroaches into “zombies” and find out about the antidote scientists have discovered.
