  1. Brilliant! This looks so good! I can’t wait until corn comes in to season here 😀

  2. I like to wrap the food in parchment first to keep the foil away from the food.

    1. @Cheryl, please enlighten me as to why you don’t want foil touching your food? Does it give it a metalic taste? Is there a health reason, like why some don’t want to cook with Aluminum pans? I know that plastic wrap and microwaves shouldn’t be combined but I hadn’t heard about foil yet….although I’ve not be keeping up with this stuff, honestly.

    2. Hi all, just an fyi! Cooking with foil touching food adds aluminum into your system. If you’re on dialysis, cooking with foil can elevate your aluminum levels in bloodwork and that is not a good thing for renal patients. My brothers levels were through the roof and his doctors could not figure why everything they tried would not bring down his levels. I stopped by my brothers as he was preparing lunch and there in the pan was a cut of meat wrapped in foil! He said it kept the juices in and made the cut tender! I relayed this information to his doctors and he put a halt to using foil for any cooking!

  3. Is there no need to add water to the pot?

  4. Does the corn come out soggy after being in crockpot for so many hours

  5. Can you cook corn on the cob in a slow cooker without butter or without oil?

    1. Yes, you can leave those out.
