To get started, the corn needs to be placed in the microwave for a period of at least eight minutes.

Once this step has been completed, head to the end of the piece of the corn and make sure that you are grabbing the stalk. From there, it is time to make an important cut. Slice the tip off, roughly 1″ above the final row of corn kernels.

Now, you can grab the end that has not been cut yet. Hold onto the corn and give it a good squeeze and shake. The corn should slide right out, without the silk or husk attached.

It’s truly that simple! If you would like to see this hack in action, take a moment to check out the video below.
