Instant Pot Corn

Instant Pot Corn Recipe that takes 2 minutes to cook, keeps your kitchen cool, impatient kids happy and corn warm all day for any time to rub with butter snd sprinkle with salt. Are you convinced yet?

We were having friends over for dinner and in desire to offer more with less cooking effort I decided to make corn on the cob in Instant Pot. Googled recipes kept pointing to 2 minutes of cooking time with quick release. Are you sceptical? Exactly, I was too. But I went for it and it’s true! I know!

To make the level of my amazement clear you have to understand my relationship with corn. Or let me be correct – my friendship with summer’s produce. If you have been following my blog for a while you know I grew up on best homemade food, and summer was an ultimate peak of it since there was no “Mexico” or “California” supplying Ukraine with year-round vegetables and fruit. I lived all year eating potatoes, canned meat and jam waiting for summer.

MY LATEST RECIPES

My birthday is in August which is the peak of everything best summer has to offer – tomatoes, watermelon, eggplant, zucchini, cucumbers, potatoes etc. and corn. It’s so sweet, what kid doesn’t love corn?! When I saw grandma bringing corn form the market, I had to be patient as I knew it will take close to an hour to cook it and then at least half hour to cool off. Kitchen would get hot, I would get sweaty making circles around the stove but we were nothing like kids today – we knew better not to whine. The reward was worth it – warm, juicy and sweet ear of corn covered in melted butter and sprinkled with salt waiting for my teeth to sink in.

Summers as a kid are forever memories! Am I right?

So, the morale of my story is that you achieve the same childhood corn with Instant Pot just much faster and with cooler kitchen. And barely any whining because today’s kids are ” instant”. And I ain’t a liar, so you know the pressure cooker will take 10 minutes to come to pressure but before and after is sheer 1 and 2 minutes. Mind blowing!

Tips for Best Instant Pot Corn

  • Snap ears of corn in half to fit smaller Instant Pots.
  • Turn on Keep Warm function to have warm corn ready to meet butter any time of the day.
  • Ditch “I can’t believe it’s not butter” spray. It’s 2018!
