Pressure cooker corn on the cob
So I made it and it is wonderful.
She explained that by adding a little butter(as an option) it infuses the butter into the corn.
- 4 to 6
- ears of corn, shucked
- 1/2 c
- water and 1/4 cup * butter
- *butter, any temperature, salted or unsalted.
- 1/2 c
- water (if not using butter)
- 1 tsp
- sugar (option)
- no salt..it makes the corn tough
- electric pressure cooker
if possible stand the ears of corn up, inside the pressure cooker's removable container.
Set the manual timer to the amount of minutes needed.
1 ear = 1 minute.
4 ears = 4 minutes
6 ears = 6 minutes and so on.
Add a little more water if you put more than 6 ears of corn on the cob.
It takes mine about 1 to 2 minutes to heat before the pressure and timer kicks in with 4 ears of corn on on the cob.
Quick release on mine: turn valve to release pressure. Make sure that the steam(release) from this is not pointing in a direction that will cause a problem. This takes less than a minute and then when you see that there is no more pressure or steam coming from the valve, open and serve. If the lid will not open give it a few more seconds.
The corn will be sweet (with the sugar), buttery and steamed and not soggy.
Season to taste!
I set my pressure cooker on top of the stove on a flat grill when I am going to use it and before I release the steam, I turn on the overhead vent fan to remove the steam. Make sure that you do not turn any burners on that could ruin your pressure cooker!
No hot kitchen :o)
