How To Pick Fresh Corn

Wondering how to pick the sweetest fresh corn? Try to get your corn at the produce market or Farmer’s market for the freshest local corn.

Treehugger has some great tips! Go ahead and pick up the corn. You want corn with dark green husks that are closely wrapped around the cob. With your hands feel the cob to ensure the corn is uniform.

You can pull the husk away (just to peek) to make sure there isn’t any decay. Pinch a kernel. You should see a white milky center.

How To Prepare Slow Cooker Corn On the Cob

To cook slow cooker corn on the cob you will need to pull off any unruly husks, and trim the ends of the corn to fit in the crockpot. That is all the preparation needed!

Put the lid on your crock pot and let it cook on high for about 2 1/2 hours.

The slow warm heat softens the kernels perfectly, and the husk and silk peels away easily once the ears are cooked.

Now all you need to do is decide if you’re going to tackle that ear by nibbling it in sections, by rows or in a circular pattern!
