Crock Pot Corn on the Cob

Crock Pot Corn on the Cob is a great side dish for any occasion. With only a few minutes of prep, you will have fresh corn for your family or any summer time cookout.

Summer is full of all kinds of fun activities, sporting events, swimming, camping, and cookouts.  Corn is served a lot during the summer months and cooking corn is one of my favorite things to cook. Fresh corn is the best, but frozen corn can be just as good.

Use your Crock Pot–It’s Easy and Handy

My crock pot gets a lot of use during the summer months. Why should you heat up your kitchen when it’s so hot outside? Yes, there are several ways to cook corn–you could throw it on the grill, or boil it in a pot of water- and they would be great–but this way is really effortless.  Seriously, using your crock pot is easy and handy. Just plug in your crock pot, add your corn, and in 4-6 hours you will have a delicious side dish.

Sweet corn and/or field corn are both great in the crock pot. If you like creamed corn, be sure to try this recipe. It’s also made in the crock pot and super easy. We have planted both sweet and field corn in our garden, but we mostly plant field corn. This corn can be harvested for us to eat during the summer months and some to can/preserve  for winter time enjoyment. We try to plant enough corn for our family as well as our farm animals to eat during the winter months. I will post a recipe later on How to Can Corn.
