Cook Corn On The Cob For A Crowd
Have you ever heard of “Cooler Corn”?
This method for cooking loads of corn on the cob is simply genius. It’s the easiest way to cook corn for a crowd.
Our whole family loves corn on the cob. When we all get together there are at least a dozen adults and a load of kids at the table. That means several dozen ears of corn. In the past we would cook them all in several large pots. A dear friend of ours, a very capable Minnesota cook with years of camping experience, asked us recently “have you ever heard of cooler corn?”. I sure haven’t so she explained the process to us.
Make Cooler Corn In 3 Easy Steps:
Cook Cooler Corn For A Crowd
Step 1 – Find a Coleman cooler and wipe it clean.
Step 2 – Fill it with the shucked ears.
Step 3 – Pour kettles-full of boiling water over the corn and close the top.
That’s it! After 30 minutes the corn is perfectly cooked.
Wow, it doesn’t get any easier than that. And I’m told that the corn will remain at the perfect level of ‘doneness’ for a couple of hours.
Cooler Corn is perfect for large barbecues and way less of a mess than grilling. In fact, we may have to buy another Coleman cooler just so we’re ready for camping with Nick’s extended family.
