Since pesto is made of olive oil, no need to add it to this recipe either. Just spoon on some pesto and spread it evenly.

When all your cobs are dressed and ready, wrap them tightly and label the foil, just so you don’t get the flavors mixed up.

Set the wrapped cobs in your dry slow cooker. If you’re preparing 4 to 6 cobs, cook for 2 hours on high; 4 hours on low. For 8 to 10 cobs, cook for 3 hours on high; 5 hours on low.

When your cobs are all done, remove them very carefully, as their foil might be hot. Take care when opening them up too.
