|This corn on the cob was popped in the microwave.|
Those ears of dark red corn were grown by the Maple Park farmers at my farmer's market. You put an ear in a paper bag and nuke it for about 2 minutes (you know the drill about waiting and listening to make sure it is popped). Most of the corn popped right off the cob, but some of it stayed on creating "corn-on-the-cob popcorn" which you have to eat that way. The popcorn was delicious--so fresh and flavorful it didn't need butter or salt or whatever that fake slimy stuff is that lines the bottom of microwave popcorn bags.
