Cooking Corn On The Cob

I experimented and cooked 6 ears of corn on the cob in the Crock Pot. I had never heard of anyone doing this but I found out that it works great! It was so good that my husband went back to the grocery store and bought more corn today so I could take pictures and share this idea on Thriftyfun. The leftover corn is good heated up in the microwave for another meal.

To cook 6 ears, I put 2 cups of water in the Crock Pot. I had to break some of the ears in half to get all of them in the pot but that's just fine. It all tastes the same. I set the dial on high and set my timer for 4 hours. That's all.

I did not touch it during the cooking time. It turned out perfect. After I took all the corn out of the pot, there was 3/4 cup of water left in the pot.

In hot weather, I put the Crock Pot on the screened porch to keep from heating up the kitchen. The first picture is the raw corn in the pot. The second picture is after the corn finished cooking. I had to wait for the steam to clear because it was fogging up the camera lens.

Cooking corn on the cob in the Crock Pot is so easy. It comes out moist and tender and the flavor is lip-smacking good. From now on, I probably won't be cooking it any other way.

If you are boiling your corn on the cob, be sure you add the corn after the water has come to full rolling boil, to which you have NOT added any salt. Instead of adding salt, add a teaspoon of sugar to the water.

You leave it in the husk and for each ear cook it in the microwave on high for 4 minutes. Then take it out with oven gloves on both hands and cut off the end where the husk is attached, at least 1/2 inch from the end.

Peel cobs and wrap loosely in a paper towel. Microwave on high 3 minutes for one cob. It is best to cook them one at a time. Be careful, the steam is very hot! Add salt, pepper, and butter to taste. You will love microwaved corn on the cob.

The easiest way to cook corn on the cob is the microwave. With the husks still on, cook the corn on high about 5 minutes. Then carefully "shuck" it, holding onto it with a hot pad.

For each cob you need to cook, tear off a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap the cob in. Lay out all the foil on the counter. Clean your cobs to get rid of all the stringy pieces and soak them in cold water for about 20 minutes.

After cooking your sweet corn to perfection, I like to roll the corn cobs in paper towels, squeezing out any remaining water. The butter just glides on.

Take three ears of sweet corn still in the husks and lay them in the microwave. Cook them on high for 7 minutes. When they're done, get a hot pad and take the ears of corn out, laying them on a cutting board.

Microwaving Fresh Corn. The best way to enjoy fresh corn if there just you or you and your husband, is to microwave each ear with husk, silk and all for 5 minutes. . .

1 16 oz pkg frozen corn, prepared as directed on pkg. If there is much moisture in it, then drain.
Add about 4 oz cream cheese (low fat is OK), stir to combine. That's all there is to it.
However, if you can take a little heat then add finely chopped jalapeno peppers with the cheese-as much as you like.

You could leave it unwrapped, and BBQ it. I always steam mine, then slice off the kernels and add butter.
