Summer is a fantastic time of year! There are so many fun activities, opportunities to gather with friends and loved ones, and so much fresh produce! I love to make use of all the fresh food in season for the recipes I prepare, but really, I would much prefer to be outdoors than in the kitchen!

For as long as I remember, this has been one of those recipes I turn to when I need to prepare something incredible, but I don’t have a lot of time to prep. My crock pot saves the day and does all of the work of cooking up this fresh as can be corn on the cob! I don’t have to worry about watching a boiling pot or draining it. This corn is ready when you are, tender crisp, juicy, sweet and full of flavor.

I love that this corn is already buttered and seasoned when it comes out of the crock pot so that you can dig in immediately to the perfect ear of corn! If you have never considered cooking corn on the cob in the crock pot, let me tell you that it is really the way to go for incredible corn!

    1. Oh no, I am sorry to hear that Nola! If they still felt hard they may have been undercooked. If your cobs were on the larger side they may have needed a little additional time to fully cook.

    1. We’ve only tried the recipe as written. I think it would work, but will take longer to cook. Let us know if you try it Karen!

  1. I was hesitant to try, but I got a great deal on corn and it is hot outside (which means I don’t want to boil water if I don’t have to). My husband was nervous, but it WORKED! The corn was great! This will be my method from now on unless the corn is bought or given to us last minute. Thank You!5 stars

  2. I make a version of your crock-pot corn on the cob that uses minced garlic instead of olive oil. it will rock your world.

    1. I came upon this recipe while searching for a way to deal with corn that didn’t require boiling (nothing wrong with it, just didn’t have a pot large enough for anything beyond 2 half cobs) and my family loved it!5 stars

  3. I’ve never seen a recipe for slow cooker corn on the cob! Does the corn stay crisp or does it get a softer…mushy texture? Thanks for your time and recipes…love them! Anxious to hear about this one!

  4. Just another exciting way to Crock up some awesome Summer corn on cob for family poolside gatherings!! This will surprise our incredible “Grill Chef!!” Take some time off his preps!!

  5. Reading LL THESE RECEPIES IN BED. can’t wait until morning and I can start fixing some of these delish looking and simple to fix (I hope) meals.DON’T YOU JUST LOVE SUMMER FOODS? I’m ALSO A BIG SOUP FAN, LOOKING FORWAED TO SOME OF YOUR IDEAS.
