This method of cooking preserves all the flavour and nutrients as it steams in its own natural covering leaves. Each cob is cooked on its own.
- Remove the very tough outer leaves from the cob leaving the cob totally covered with fresh looking leaves.
- Trim the beard and stem.
- Place in the microwave and cook for 4 minutes.
- Leave to stand for about 6 minutes until it is cool enough to handle. Remove the leaves and beard from the cob being careful not to be scalded by the steam.
- Enjoy! And there are NO PANS to WASH UP.
This method was recommended to me from Ana Cors, plot 127B. Thank you Ana – its brilliant.
