  • Slow Cooker


  • 12 Ears of Corn
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 stick Salted Butter


  • Shuck corn and clean stray hairs off each ear of corn.
  • Remove the stick of butter from the refrigerator and set on the counter to get to room temperature. 
  • Place the corn in a 6.5-quart slow cooker. Pour the water in the slow cooker. Place the lid on top and cook for 3 hours on high. Do not remove the lid until cooking time is done.
  • Once the corn is cooked, drain the water. Place the stick of room temperature butter in the slow cooker, place the lid on and let the butter melt (about 5 minutes with heat off). Enjoy immediately or let sit covered until ready to eat. 



  • If you are serving a large crowd and/or your slow cooker won't fit the 12 ears of corn, feel free to split the ears in half prior to cooking.
  • Not cooking for a crowd? You can cook as few as 4 ears of corn in the slow cooker!
