How to Cook Corn on the Cob for Large Crowds: Cooler Corn
I saw one of the most amazing and baffling cooking tips ever, on Pinterest last Fall. I couldn’t wait until corn season returned, so I could give this idea of “Cooler Corn” a try. If you have ever wondered how to cook corn on the cob for large crowds, this is THE WAY! I had a difficult time tracking down the originator of this particular pin, but I believe it came from Bon Appetit.
Cooking corn on the cob for a big crowd, using a pot and water, can take a long time, or use up a lot of pots. By using a cooler (aka Ice Chest), you can cook a boatload of corn at once. Give your cooler a good wash and scrub, then lay out your corn on the cob. Poor two kettles, or pots, of boiling water over your corn. Close the lid of the cooler and let your corn sit for about 30 minutes. Voila!! We gave it a try over Mother’s Day weekend, and it worked perfectly! The corn should be able to sit and remain a good temperature, for a couple of hours.
