I have a super easy recipe for you all today! I don’t usually buy corn on the cob, because I thought it was too much of a hassle to cook. I recently discovered that you could cook them in a slow cooker, so of course I had to give it a try! It’s so easy; I really wish I had found this before, because I would have been doing it all summer long. I used corn from my local Farmer’s Market because wow, they were huge. Yes, it might be a little more expensive there, but the quality is excellent.
The recipe is simple; here’s what you need:
- Corn on the cob, shucked and rinsed
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Aluminum foil
Place the corn on a piece of aluminum foil, brush with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap the corn tightly in the foil, and fit as many as you can into your slow cooker. It’ll be an awkward fit, especially if your corn is really long, but it really works. Place the lid on top and cook on HIGH for about 3 hours. The result is easily and perfectly cooked corn, no boiling required! You can customize this any way you like, too; you can add garlic powder, chili powder, whatever you think will taste good.
Next Summer, I definitely plan on doing this once a week with in-season corn, no excuses. Try it next time, it’s amazing!
