Summer Season is Corn Season

If there is one thing that my family all agrees on, it’s that we love corn on the cob.  Here in SE Pennsylvania, when mid-August hits we can get some of the juiciest, most flavorful sweet corn from Jersey or from the farms in Lancaster.  This corn is bursting with flavor and the perfect compliment to just about any dinner!  Corn on the cob is also a popular side dish for summer barbecues and picnics.

This Instant Pot corn on the cob recipe offers SUCH an easy, fast alternative to the traditional methods of cooking corn. Typically we cook our corn on the cob by boiling in on the stove. Another favorite cook method is to grill corn on the cob.

When we are short on time, you can find us making our corn on the cob in the Instant Pot. A pressure cooker is a great way to cook corn in just minutes without compromising taste!
