Pressure cooking corn on the cob is the only way to go!  Perfectly tender and crisp every single time!



  1. Add 1 cup of water to the pot of the pressure cooker and place a collapsible steamer basket or a trivet inside.  Place the desired number of cobs in the basket/trivet. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 2-4 minutes depending on desired crispness.
  2. When cooking is complete, use a quick release.
  3. Spread the cooked cobs with butter and add a sprinkle of salt and lemon pepper.


How to Freeze Fresh Corn

  1. To a large bowl add lots of ice and cold water, set aside.
  2. Pour 1 cup of water into the pressure cooker pot and place a trivet inside.  Place cobs of corn on the trivet (as many as will fit).  Cook at high pressure for 0 minutes, followed by a quick release.
  3. Immediately put corn in the prepared ice bath.
  4. Once cooled, cut corn off the cob, pat dry with a towel, then place on a sheet pan lined with nonstick foil.  Freeze until solid then transfer to a freezer safe bag.  Store in freezer 3 months or so.
