It is Fresh and Tasty Friday … local crop of the day is Corn!
Corn this time of year on Long Island is perfect. An ear of corn is so sweet and delicious from any local farm or farm stand.

My favorite way to eat corn is right on the cob with melted butter. So delicious!
Make corn on the cob in minutes: If you have not seen this trick on the computer already this is how you can make corn on the cob in the microwave. It is so easy and convenient.
First, place corn in microwave. Husk and all for 4 minutes per ear of corn in microwave.
Take out with oven mitt because the corn is super hot. Place on a cutting board.
Now cut off end of corn with a knife.
Turn the corn upside down and the corn will slide out of the husk easily with no mess.
Put butter or margarine on cob and let cool. You are ready to enjoy your local sweet corn on the cob!
