Crock Pot Corn On The Cob
Bet you haven’t thought of cooking corn on the cob in your slow cooker. You should, you know, and it is so easy to do too.
Typically you might think of corn boiling in a big pot on top of the stove, and then dripping butter everywhere.
But, this is where the beauty and simplicity of a crock pot (slow cooker) comes in handy. You do not have to worry about being scalded with boiling water. Additionally, the mess is minimal.
And who doesn’t love a meal item that makes clean up a breeze?
A Natural Canadian Food Source
Corn is a natural food source found in Canada. Oh, sure, our Prairie provinces are world known for wheat production, however, that is not a naturally found food source in Canada. Wheat was imported and planted here in Canada during the early settler days. By 1831, a genetically modified wheat was growing well here. It had to be genetically altered to withstand our cold climate.
But before wheat, there was corn!
And corn grows well and abundantly in Canada. It can be pounded to a fine meal known as cornmeal. Mmmm, Peameal Bacon, Canadian Back Bacon, or Cornmeal Bacon, however you prefer to call it. Actually with it no longer being coated in Pea Meal, we really should get back to calling it Cornmeal Bacon. Hmm, just a thought you know, eh?
Find cornmeal in muffins, cakes, breading for fish frying and more. And, hey, don’t forget a movie lover’s favorite snack—popcorn.
However, many of us prefer, leaving the corn whole and eaten as corn on the cob lathered in butter, salt and pepper.
So if you enjoy a good cob of corn, give this simple recipe a try. Comment below and let me know what you think.
