I love my pressure cooker. I mean LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my pressure cooker. And I love corn on the cob. LOVE corn on the cob.
So a couple days ago, before the nice man came and fixed my AC, I had some early season corn on the cob. But boiling a giant pan of water was going to make my house hotter than the sauna it already was. That corn and all it’s corny goodness was just waiting for butter and salt so I HAD to do something. My pressure cooker was sitting right there so I thought why not give it a try?
I used about 3/4 cup water in the bottom of the pot and put the ears on the steamer trivet.
Unfortunately, I could only fit four ears. That’s barely enough for just me! I set the cooker for 6 minutes. It took roughly 6 minutes to pressurize so a total of 12 minutes.
Final result: It worked just fine. Next time I’ll set it for 9 minutes and see if it ends up a little more tender. The corn was a teeny bit tough but hard to tell if from the pressure cooker or just this batch of corn. I do wish I could do more ears at a time, but the benefit of not having to boil water outweighs that. I will definitely prepare corn this way again.
