One of my favorite things in the summer time is native corn on the cob. Obviously it’s only warm for about three months here in the Boston area, so corn only grows here in the summer. Therefore, corn on the cob is something we can’t always get here in New England and if we do happen to see it in stores during the winter months, it’s imported from somewhere. Since we can only get fresh corn on the cob for a short time around here, we eat A LOT of it. I mean A LOT – like almost every night all summer long.
Did you know that you can make corn on the cob in your slow cooker? I literally just found it out last year and other than grilling it, make it in the crock pot is the only other way I make it now. Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob is SO good.
