WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob
Make perfect corn on the cob without boiling water or turning on your grill! Use your crock pot instead.
The corn steams in it's own juices.
Moist, tender, delicious corn on the cob.
Just shuck and clean the corn. Wrap each ear in foil. Place them in your slow cooker (affiliate link) and cook on HIGH for 2 to 3 hours.
How easy is that?
If you wanted you could season your corn before you wrap it in foil or you can spice it when you serve it.
Either way will work.
I like my corn plain and simple: sprinkled with salt and pepper.
But you could spice things up with chili powder, lime juice, curry powder, garlic pepper, pesto, grated Parmesan, cajun seasoning, etc.
Or better yet, just let everyone spice their own corn to their own taste.
This corn on the cob is so moist, sweet, and flavorful you might even be able to eat it without butter 🙂

Hello Martha, could you cook this corn in the slow cooker without having to wrap in foil or would they dry out?
Hi Cathie, I've only done it as described in the recipe. If you were to opt to skip the foil, I would add 1/2 - 2/3 cup of water into the bottom of the slow cooker to keep them from drying out. Hope this helps. ~Martha
Delicious! My family loves corn especially fresh corn!
Can you put the corn on top of each other…like to layers of three?
Hi Tricia, Yes, layering the corn should work fine. ~Martha
