Now that sweet corn is in season, a frugal way to prepare it and save time and water is to make it in your microwave. Use a gallon size freezer bag and place the peeled and cleaned ears of corn inside. Six will fit easily.

The very best way to cook corn is to leave the husk and silk as is (unless there is a wormy spot on the tip, if so cut away that part) and place three at a time in the microwave with a damp paper towel over the top.
