🌡️What is Sous Vide Cooking?

Sous Vide cooking is a process where food is cooked in a water bath that is set to a precise temperature using an immersion circulator. An immersion circulator is a device that heats and controls the temperature of the water in a water bath. This allows for precise control over the cooking process, which leads to consistent results every time.

This process can be used for a variety of different foods, but we will be focusing on how to cook corn on the cob using this method today!

✔️Benefits Of Using Sous Vide To Cook Corn

  • The corn cooks in its own juices which means it stays moist and tender.
  • If you’re using butter, the corn will self butter as it cooks.
  • No need to babysit the corn when cooking in sous vide as it is a hands-off cooking method.
  • You can cook the corn in advance and then reheat it when ready to serve.

🌽Ingredients & Tools

  • Immersion Circulator – I love my Anova Culinary Sous Vide because it’s precise and has a handy app with lots of information.
  • Large Pot – You’ll need a large pot or a container that is big enough to hold water, the corn, and the immersion circulator.
  • Vacuum Seal or Freezer Safe Plastic Bag – You can use vacuum sealer bags or a large freezer-safe bag for the water displacement method.
  • Corn On The Cob – Fresh, uncooked corn on the cob is used for cooking.
  • Salt & Pepper – Seasons the corn on the cob simply. You can use any seasoning you enjoy.
  • Butter – Adds a rich buttery flavor that gets infused into the corn cobs when cooked.

🥣How To Sous Vide Corn On The Cob

1️⃣ Heat the water bath: Add water to a large container or pot. Place the immersion circulator on the side and set the temperature for 180F.

2️⃣ Prep the corn: Remove the husks and silks from the corn. You can leave the ends intact or trim them off.

3️⃣ Season the corn: Sprinkle each ear of corn with salt, pepper on all sides, then add to a freezer-safe bag or vacuum-sealed bag along with pats of butter sprinkled throughout. Seal the bag with a vacuum sealer or use the water displacement method.

4️⃣ Cook the corn: Once the water comes up to temperature, submerge the bagged corn into the water bath and cook for60 minutes.

5️⃣ Finish with butter and seasoning: Carefully remove the corn from the bag and pat dry. Serve with additional butter and your favorite seasonings.
