Crock Pot Corn on the Cob
Here is another easy peasy recipe, especially with the summer looming and fresh corn on the cob at the ready.
Another great thing: you get to use the crock pot and spare your kitchen and house the use of the stove. And, you can’t really screw up this recipe, so it’s a win/win all the way around.
Let’s get down to the goods, shall we?
As always, read through the notes prior to beginning.
- Aluminum Foil
- Fresh corn on the cob (shucked and cleaned)
- Shucking and cleaning your corn
- Cut squares of foil (one for each ear of corn)
- Using a small pat of butter, cover the ear of corn, then season well with salt and pepper.
- Wrap each ear of corn in the foil and wrap tightly (make sure it is sealed well)
- Place in crock pot
- Set crock pot to low and cook for approx. 5 hours.
- Be adventurous here. I used butter, salt, and pepper. But you can certainly use olive oil instead of butter and any sort of seasonings that tickle you taste buds.
- I used a small pat of butter, just enough to cover the ear of corn.
- Take advantage of the kiddos here. They will love helping and they make great corn shuckers.
- I let my corn cook for 5 hours, realistically, it was probably done at around 4, but after 5 hours, the corn was the perfect amount of done.
- Make sure that you wrap each ear of corn well, making sure it's tightly sealed.
- Be mindful of young taste buds. Don't go too heavy on the pepper for the kiddos.
