While we love corn on the cob and try to get as much of it as possible while it’s in season, we hate boiling it (since it never seems to taste as good that way). What we didn’t know is that there’s another way to cook it that is easier and results in better flavor…in the slow cooker!
By placing the corn and water in the slow cooker, the corn steams deliciously without losing any of its sweet flavor. Then, you’re free to spruce it up with all the butter and salt and pepper you want and enjoy it to its fullest!
