Recipe Box, National Corn on the Cob Day, Techniques & Recipes

To celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day, I have rounded up my favorite corn recipes and cooking techniques

I’m somewhat of a purist when it comes to vegetables, I like them fresh and simply prepared, especially corn

You won’t find any recipes on my blog for spreading corn with spices or fancy butters, I like fresh corn cooked until just done and brushed with a little butter and kosher salt.  Period.

But I do love to incorporate corn as an ingredient in other dishes, with plenty of seasonings, and love to use leftover corn on the cob

If you don’t have leftover corn, no problem, use one of the effortless cooking and shucking methods below to have freshly cooked corn on hand any time

  • corn on the cob



  • Place unshucked corn in a large slow cooker.  Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours.  Shuck with  Easy Shucking Method

Oven, in husk

  • Place unshucked corn in oven directly on rack.  Bake at 350 for hour.  Shuck with Easy Shucking Method*

Oven, no husk

  • Place cleaned corn cobs in a shallow roasting pan together, and cover with foil, or wrap each cob individually in foil.  Roast at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.


  • Place corn in husk in microwave.  Cook for 4 minutes per ear.  If cooking more than 1 ear, Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes per ear.

Easy Shucking Method

  • Cut off fat end of corn at widest point about 1 inch from end.  Grab small end of corn by the husk only and hold cob vertically.  Gently wiggle/shake corn, giving it a push from the top if necessary,  until it slides out of the husk, leaving the silk inside

Stay Hot Method

  • Wrap roasted corn with heavy duty foil and then in a thick towel. Place in a sealed empty cooler.  Corn will stay hot for several hours
