Corn On The Cob Cooked In The Slow Cooker ~ Slides right out no need to shuck the corn before you cook it.

Two years ago I told you all how to  Shuck and Cook Corn Quickly in 3 easy steps, in this method you do not have to peel or shuck your corn and it is ready to eat in 3 minutes.  But this method does involve a microwave  and you can only cook one at a time.   That is what lead me to the idea to try the same method, but in the slow cooker or crock-pot.  Honestly I had no idea if it would even work. I searched pinterest  to see if there were any ideas or how to posts… NOPE. I could not find anything about cooking corn STILL in the husk in a slow cooker.Corn On The Cob slow cooker crock pot recipe , No need to shuck the corn you can cook it with the husk still on, Corn on the cob without husking the corn, summer bbq recipes

So I decided to try a little experiment, and see if I could shuck corn in a slow cooker.  I won’t leave you in suspense too long it turned out amazing and was super easy.  The corn was plump and juicy and evenly cooked, and slid right out of the husk with no silk left. Here is how I shucked corn in a slow cooker or crock pot.

Step one is to place the corn on a cutting board and use a sharp butchers knife to chop the bottom end off. You will want to cut the end off that does NOT have the silk on it which is the fat end. You will need a good sturdy knife to get thru the cob and the husk all at once. Watch your fingers and be careful.  Place the corn cob with the husks still on, inside a large slow cooker or crock pot.  I cooked 4 of them on high for 3 1/2 hours and they were perfectly cooked.   The crock pot could have fit several more inside. If I was to cook 6+ I would increase the cooking time to 4 hours on high.  If you wanted a low and slow option you could do low temp for 6-8 hours instead.

When you are ready to eat them, pick up the corn with a towel or dish cloth.  Watch out the corn will be HOT.  Hold the top of the corn (part with the silk or smaller pointy end) firmly with the towel and squeeze downward.  Give it a little shake, as you squeeze the corn will slide right out of the husk and all the silk will stay inside the husk.  You are left with a perfectly cooked cob of corn, ready to cover with butter and eat.

One of the ends of my corn was right up against the edge of the slow cooker. It did turn a little brown, this could have been avoided by wrapping the end with a little bit of foil. Not needed but an option if you want all your corn to  be perfectly golden.Corn On The Cob slow cooker crock pot recipe , No need to shuck the corn you can cook it with the husk still on, Corn on the cob without husking the corn, summer bbq recipes

Another good way to cook corn….shuck, place in cooler and pour boiling water to cover……close lid….twenty minutes corn is perfect. Good thing about this way, you can cook many ears at a time.

But without liquid… I think it’s awesome, I would have put some liquid because that’s what I always do. Would have been concerned about corn drying out.
Really love your experimentation and am looking forward to trying it.
I also have an electric pressure cooker…wonder how that would work?

I did the microwave version (link in blog post) and I thought a slowcooker would be nice since I dont like to use a microwave that much.. but i love my slow cooker..

Very interesting!!What made you think to put them into a slow cooker without liquid to cook?

I understand that about the crock pot method. I’m just talking about the basic boil method. Most people will let it cook way too long after the second boil.

Deb Swearengin DeLucia no water with this method.. the corn doesnt get watered down and the water turn yellow cause the nutrients and flavor wash out of it..
