Can corn on the cob relieve anxiety? Probably not, but maybe writing about it will.
The project I’m working on has me in a knot of anxiety, which I hate. I’m not usually an anxious person. I do like writing on this blog, though, so as a reward to myself for a day of teeth-gnashing on the book project, I offer up this quick post on the world’s easiest way to cook corn on the cob.
Peek inside top of corn ear to make sure it doesn’t have a worm. (I don’t want to cook worms.)
Put the whole ear in the microwave, and zap it for 2 minutes. Turn it over and zap 1 minute. Remove from microwave and wait a minute or two.
Using a towel or hot pads (the ear and its contents are hot!), pull back the corn husks and pull away the silks. If you haven’t cooked a whole ear before, you will not believe how easily the silks pull off when the ear has been cooked.
Adding butter is optional, but I kind of like it.
I feel better now. I haven’t tried this with more than one ear at a time. I don’t know why it wouldn’t work with more. Just increase the cooking time, I reckon.
