Take three ears of sweet corn still in the husks and lay them in the microwave. Cook them on high for 7 minutes. When they're done, get a hot pad and take the ears of corn out, laying them on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut the cob off husks and all, about an inch from the bottom of the ear.
Once you have the cob cut off, hold the ear up at the top where the silks come out. Give the ear a few shakes and out will pop an ear of corn all cooked and ready to eat without one silk on it. Sometimes you may have to help loosen the husks where you cut, but all the silks still come off as you pull on the top. It works best while the corn is hot. This is one of the best tips I have ever used.
