We got a bunch of corn in our local co-op basket a couple weekends ago and I desperately needed to cook it. Hubbyman wasn’t going to be home in time to grill it (my all time fav) and I didn’t just want to steam it, so I started thinking…I can cook potatoes in the slow cooker, why not learn How to Cook Corn on the Cob in a Slow Cooker.  The corn went perfectly with yesterday’s Triple Citrus Roasted Chicken.

How to Cook Corn on the Cob in a Slow Cooker


Fill slow cooker about 3/4 of the way with water.  Season liberally with salt.

  9. I don’t understand why anyone would make corn in a slow cooker when you can make it on the stove in five minutes. Sounds like twice the work for the same result. I guess it would work for a cookout?
