How to Cook Frozen Corn on the Cob

Either it’s from the supermarket or straight from your freezer, the only difference between cooking fresh corn from frozen ones is the period of time that it takes. There are different ways to prepare frozen corn on the cob. Featured below are four different ways of preparation: pressure cooker, microwave oven, traditional oven and grill.

How to Cook Frozen Corn on the Cob

Pressure Cooker Instructions

Pour in your pressure cooker a cup of water. Place the trivet or steamer basket at the bottom then place the corn on top. At mid-high heat, let the pressure come up then set it to medium. Cook it for about 4-5 minutes. Quickly set off the pressure. Once pressure has entirely gone off, get the corn from the pressure cooker.

Microwave Oven Instructions

There are two ways. One way is to put water, about a fourth of a cup and your frozen corn in a microwaveable container. Cover it and set it on high. Turn-over your corn halfway the cooking time.

Another way is wrapping each corn in paper towel and dampened thoroughly, set it on high till well heated. It would take 8-10 minutes if you’re cooking four, 13-15 minutes for eight and 18-20 minutes for twelve. Due to microwave variations all these times are estimated.

Grilling Instructions

On a sheet of heavy duty aluminium foil, put each frozen corn, brush each with butter then wrap the foil. Put the corn on the preheated grill. Turn them occasionally while grilling. With grill lid closed, corn should be ready in 25-35 minutes.

Oven Instructions

Preheat oven at 425°F or 220°C. Rub each corn with a bit of butter then wrap them with aluminum foil. On your upper oven rack, put your prepared corn. Cooking time is 25 to 35 minutes. To avoid drip mess in your oven, put a jelly-roll pan under the rack where your corn is.

Although cooking corn in boiling water is rather common in cooking fresh corn, it doesn’t work as well with your frozen corn. Dunking your frozen corn in boiling water would only make the water cool down too much and for it to boil back; it would take a lot of time. So, if you want to cook your frozen corn in boiling water, then you should thaw it first. If you prefer to cook it right away, then use the suggested methods above.
