So I might have just joined the official slow cooker fan club. I have a house full of sick kids. One of which is both sick and teething. I am living on pure will power right now. So I have been using my slow cooker for almost everything. I have made soup, oats, chex mix– everything in it for the last two days. Although nothing compares to this corn on the cob. Slow-cooker corn on the cob =
So this is my first slow-cooker recipe because I finally got a slow cooker y’all. I mean what kind of food blogger doesn’t have a croc-pot? Me, that’s who!! My mom gave me a early mother’s day gift, one of those fancy slow-cookers that comes with a digital timers. I am officially in love. I had one of those slow cooker that that doubled as a rice cooker/slow cooker/ maybe even a steamer. I never once used it for anything other than making rice. So this is a Game–changer.
My husbands makes the best corn on the cob. He slow braises them in coconut milk. So when I started to experiment with the slow cooker- I wondered if I could make his corn on the cob in the crock pot…. and the answer is yes. And I dare say it is even better because of the slow braising process.
Oh yes! The aroma of the corn and coconut milk that filled my house was amazing. I love when my house smells that delicious lol.
At this point you can add extra butter- I won’t be mad. You can top that extra butter with cilantro- I really won’t be mad at you. Or you can just eat them straight out of the crock pot- I seriously won’y be mad at you.
Note: The liquid that is left over is pure magic. Don’t throw it away- add it to any corn soup and it will add a extra corn flavor that is pure dy-na-mite!
