  • Corn – I cook corn on the cob in the microwave with the husk still on. Easy and the silk removes cleanly after cooked this way. Corn can also be cooked in the oven 350* for 30 minutes.

* Farro can be cooked on top of the stove or I cook mine in my Instant Pot. Be sure to follow directions as different brands may require different cooking times.
