Remember how good and how easy the crockpot baked potatoes were? CrockPot corn on the cob is just as easy, and doesn't take as long to cook. The corn steams in it's own juices and is cooked to absolute perfection.
I used my 6qt Smart Pot and six ears of corn fit perfectly. I probably could have shoved in one more, but I only bought six.
shuck the corn, or get your kids to do it. because I'm pretty sure that is why kids were invented.
wrap each ear in aluminum foil
place the foil-wrapped corn in the crockpot
DO NOT ADD WATER
cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
I like my corn to have a crunch--two hours was perfect for us, but check and taste for your family's preference.
PS: If you don't want to use Aluminum Foil, you don't have to. You can even leave the corn in the husks if you'd like (but I think those little stringy things are weird ...)
Anyway, if you're not into the foil you can simply plop the washed and clean corn in the pot. If you are fancy you can add a bit of butter and herbs and some Parmesan cheese -- or you can just let them steam in their own juice.
There is truly no need to add water if you have a good sealing crockpot.
these are the crockpots I use and recommend: Steph's Favorite Slow Cookers.
