How to make Instant Pot Corn on the Cob:

  1. Add trivet rack to the Instant Pot and add 1 cup water.
  2. Husk corn and place in Instant Pot. Lay 2 or 3 corn ears down first, then 2-3 on top, facing the opposite direction. Secure lid and set valve to sealing.
  3. Cook on Manual (high pressure) for 3 minutes. Quick release when the timer beeps to release pressure.
  4. Remove corn with tongs. Serve warm with butter, salt, and pepper.

Freezing Instructions:

To Freeze Kernels: Hold the corn upright with one hand at the top end and use a sharp knife to cut the kernels off of the cob. Spoon corn into freezer-safe bags. Squeeze all of the air out, seal the bag, and label it with the date. Freeze for up to 8 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating.

To Freeze Whole Cob: Allow it to cool completely, then wrap each corn cob in tinfoil. Place in a freezer-safe bag. Allow the corn to thaw in the fridge before eating or re-warming in the microwave.
