Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob

The Aspinwall VFD Flea Market is in full swing and coming to a close next month.  I'm not sure if the farmers have corn but  I thought you might like to know how to make that delicious corn on the cob without the huge pot of boiling water that can be made for those days when you are grilling steaks outside.

It's easy peasy so they say.  Just line your slow cooker with a spray and then add a quarter cup of water to the bottom.

Place your husked corn into the slow cooker.  I suggest cutting the ears in half in order to get more corn into the slow cooker.  Set the temperature to low and let it cook for 2 hours.  See the latest way of husking corn in my article on putting up corn for the winter.

If you prefer you can wrap your ears of corn in foil.  Brush the corn with melted butter and season to taste.

Husking the corn is now easier and less time consuming so why not use modern methods linked here to achieve what took a lot of hard work to achieve.

What's great about this recipe is that you can take the whole crock outside when the corn is done and you are ready to eat at the picnic table.

Which ever method you choose, the end result is a mouth watering summer treat while the corn is fresh out of the fields.  Bon apetit' and as my mother-in-law used to say, "try it -- you'll like it."
