  • Microwave for 30 seconds at a time. It’s important not to overcook them, or you will split the kernels. Cooking time will vary from microwave to microwave and depending on how many cobs you’re cooking at once.
  • Keep blasting for 30-second intervals until they’re warmed to your satisfaction.

Notes

Top tips

  • To get the maximum flavor hit, before each 30-second burst in the microwave, coat each cob with a little melted butter using a pastry brush.
  • Don’t overcook your corn on the cob when reheating. Otherwise, the sugars will turn to starch ruining both the taste and the texture of the corn. It’s ready to eat when it’s just warm through.
