I wonder if the previous poster that said the butter ruined this even tried this. This is awesome. Smearing lots of butter on an ear of corn in a ritual where I come from. This was really good and an easy way to fix corn for a busy family. We LOVED it. I used even more butter than the recipe called for.....YUMMY.

Yet another excellent twissis-proof recipe. Since prior reviewers were of mixed opinion on issues of butter amt, salt, water, etc, I opted to put my own spin on your recipe. I used lrg ears of frozen corn & expected excess moisture, so I didn't bother with wrapping the corn or using water. I just put the corn in the crock-pot, drenched it w/the garlic herb butter (made as written) & then let my guests salt & pepper their portions at the table plus add more butter sauce as desired. Love the no-muss, no-fuss cooking method & the outcome. Thx for posting this recipe for us.

1/2 cup of butter is a lot of fat to be adding to that meal. It ruins what should be healthy meal.

This is an excellent way to make corn. I made 4 ears of corn. Way too much butter mixture. You could easily use half. I found that there was a lot of water within each package which drained a lot of the butter mixture off and diluted it. I had extra butter mixture and applied that after removing it from the foil and that worked well. After 5 hours on low, the corn was cooked to perfection. Thanks for sharing a great technique for cooking corn on the cob. I'll try using less water next time also as suggested by another reviewer. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.

The corn turned out great. I cooked 2 ears of corn on high for 2 hours. I cut the butter to half and kept the garlic the same. I had some left over butter and DH used it to re-butter his corn. Next time I will add some parmesan cheese. Great recipe.

Oh my this is so good! Corn, butter, garlic-super ingredients! Easy as can be and no hot & steamy kitchen. Love that! Great technique. I did have 2 layers of corn in my oval crock pot and it worked fine. Mine were done in the suggested time frame on high. I used less than half the amount of butter called for and omitted the salt-personal preference. And next time I will skip the garlic, but that is my personal preference. I sort of think that the water level could be even less, but am unsure. For supper we had this with Fettuccine With Chardonnay and Red Pepper. A vegetarian feast! Thank you barefootmommawv for sharing a wonderful recipe. Made for Crockpot Challenge.
