Summertime Cooler Corn On The Cob

How To Cooler Corn Recipe

Kitchen Hack:  Cooler Corn on the Cob

Have you ever wondered what the most effective way to cook a large quantity of corn on the cob for a big party was?  And if you're traveling, how are you going to transport all that corn and keep it warm at the same time?  Enter the Cooler Corn method!  It couldn't be easier to make 20 or more full ears of corn on the cob at once and keep it hot and ready for your backyard BBQ, camping trip, or tailgating party.  Best of all, it takes seconds to clean up with a hose!

Step by Step:

1.  Shuck all the corn and clean the silk off.  Place your corn into a large rolling cooler.  In the photo, I've got 15 ears in there, and there was more than enough room for at least 20 more.

2.  Boil a large stockpot of water and pour it over the top of the corn.  Make sure the tops of the corn are covered.  If they are floating, it's ok.  When you close the lid, it will seal in the heat and still cook the corn evenly.
3.  Add one stick of salted butter and a cup of milk for every 10 ears of corn.  This will give the corn a rich creamy flavor using way less salt and butter per cob!

4.  Close the cooler and wait at least 30 minutes.  You can do this right before you leave, and by the time you arrive at your destination your corn will be perfectly cooked!

Use a pair of tongs to remove the ears from the water, and be sure to keep the lid closed to lock in the heat for hours.  Enjoy!
