We had some great corn on the cob that we cooked on the grill on July 4. There was a lot extra, so I was planning on cooking it tonight. I'm not sure what the best way is to reheat it. Can I put it in the microwave without it drying out? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What we always do is scrape it off the cob as soon as we're done, put it in a sealed container with just a bit of water, then reheat it with butter and water on the stove (or in the microwave). If you leave it on the cob, it will get yucky.

My suggestion would be to plunge it into boiling water for a minute or two--provided it isn't already overcooked. Honestly, I have never tried to reheat grilled corn on the cob.

My grannie always put it in aluminum foil, with a teaspoon of water, and a dab of butter...pop it in the oven for 5 minutes, on 350.

I actually started making dinner after I read Kelly's post. Although we stored it in the fridge on the cob, I cut it off the cob and mixed it w/butter and a little bit of water. I cooked it in the microwave for about 2 minutes, and it came out perfectly. Thanks for the quick suggestions!

I've done the "corn in advance" and microwaved it without problem.

However, I LOVE "fried" corn! Cut the cold corn off of the corn and saute in butter until heated. Add a bit of chives too. I really liked the sections composed of many "row sections" of corn.

One of my daughter's favorite dishes last summer was a fried dish that used left-over corn on the cob.

potatoes--prefer boiled, roasted, or cubed baked, but raw works, too
onion--raw works best
carrot slices--cooked or raw
bacon or bacon drippings
corn

measurements depend on what you have left-over. The sweeter the corn, the better. This is a great way to deal with pot roast left-overs.

Just fry it all up like hash. If you are four-years-old, you may want to smother it with ketchup.

Possible variations are endless. And here is my daughter's contribution:

I've always just put it in a plastic sealed bag with a little bit of butter and cooked it on half power for about three minutes, never had any problems and it tastes as if you just took it out of the pot.

I leaned this trick from my sister years ago, corn on the cob, fresh, butter, slat and perper to taste, place in a platic microwave bag heat on high for 5 minutes, fresh cooked corn without submerging it in water. The whole family loves this as it taste fresher then boiling it in water.

When I have leftover corn on the cob, I roll each cob in a sheet of Saran Wrap and twist the ends. Reheat in microwave for a 90 seconds. The taste is as fresh as when first prepared.

Last night I used the leftover corn on the cobb like this: Corn was cold, cut it off the cob. Added it on top of Arugula, dressed with rice vinegar and a little olive oil, salt and pepper, with a dash of sesame oil. Our guests loved it and even the kids ate their veggies!

The best way (I think) to eat corn on the cob cold is to cut it off the cob, add chopped up tomatoes, salt, pepper & Mayo. A quick way to cook it is husk, wrap in damp paper towel & microwave about 1 1/2 min. Acxtually yiou can do almost any fresh vegs this way.
