Instant Pot Recipes Using Corn

Corn is so versatile with the many dishes you can create from savory to sweet, or as the main dish for lunch or sidekick for dinner.


Instant Pot Corn Recipes
Corn is in season! It’s summer but of course, you can get corn all year round as canned or frozen. There are a lot of different types of corn including sweet corn (vegetable we eat), dent or “field” corn (animal feed and other industrial applications like ethanol), flour corn (used for cornmeal), and flint corn (known as Indian corn, often beautifully multicolored). Sweet corn is best when it is really, really fresh. The kernels become starchier and less sweet the longer the ears are stored.

Fresh corn is a good source of Vitamin B6, thiamin, niacin, magnesium, iron, and a number of other important minerals. It’s low in fat and high in dietary fiber and protein. It’s also gluten-free, very affordable, and kids love it.

Do you have childhood summer memories of biting into an ear of corn and having melted butter run down your chin? Corn is so versatile as a main or side dish or from savory to sweet. It freezes well. Just blanch the corn (easiest to do still on the cob) for 3-4 minutes in boiling water, and then quickly cool in an ice bath (ice plus water). Pat dry. Cut the kernels off the cob, place in freezer bags and freeze.

 

Today, we have a few Instant Pot corn recipes to share from traditional corn on the cob to chowder. These can be made with fresh corn but also with frozen or canned.
