Corn on the cob delights people of all ages. It’s a favorite of my bunch for sure which means I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it.

Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob with Garlic Herb Butter is the newest way and it’s a hit here. I know it probably seems a bit odd to use a crockpot for corn on the cob when it’s simple enough to make but it’s even easier made this way.

I used the mini frozen ears of corn this time because it’s what I had on hand but you can use full-sized frozen or fresh ears of corn. The cooking time remains the same.
