Instant Pot Fresh Corn Risotto

This was one of those “what do we have in the house to use up” nights. We have had fresh corn sitting in the fridge for a few days and we needed to use it up before it started to turn. So after a quick google, we found this recipe. The Instant Pot always makes a delicious creamy risotto, and the addition of the fresh corn gives this recipe a neat, clean, sweet crisp that is very different [but in a good way] from other savory risottos.
