It was super fun to pull the whole husk off in one motion!
But I have to say this method is not for us. Four minutes per ear was way too much. I was afraid the first ear I tried was going to turn into popcorn. From then I tried 3 minutes and the whole husk still came off. Not every bit of silk came off and so I still steamed the ears in an inch or two of water because that is how I always get those last silks off. I also thought it was time consuming, three minutes per ear of corn took close to 20 minutes to husk the corn. I can sit outside and get 6 ears of corn husked in less than 5 minutes, or even better – get my kids to do it.
