This is an easy way to make corn on the cob for a crowd. Bonus, it doesn’t

heat up your kitchen as much as some methods.

You’ll need:


A sturdy cooler

A pot to boil water

For up to 18 full cobs of corn, boil 10-14 quarts of water on the stove.

While the water is boiling, clean the corn as usual, shucking it and cleaning it well. Then pile the cleaned corn in the cooler.

When the water boils, pour it carefully over the corn until the corn is fully covered.

Close the lid and leave it alone for 30 minutes. If you started with frozen corn, give it another 20 minutes.

When the center of cobs is soft enough to insert cob holder or a fork, it’s done.

That’s all there is to it! The result is corn that is not overcooked, but still crisp and delicious.
