6 Easy Steps to Freezing Fresh Corn

cornWith just a few more weeks of fresh corn season to go, now is a perfect time to
freeze corn
so you can enjoy it throughout the winter. The process is a little messy,
but you’ll thank yourself in the cold months when you taste that sweet corn!

1. Husk corn and remove the silk.
2. Blanch corn in boiling water for 5-6 minutes.
3. Remove cobs from water and place them into pot of ice water to cool and stop the cooking process.
4. Place the corn in ice water for at least 2 minutes. You can add ice if water warms up. Then, drain water.
5. Cut the kernels off the cob by running a knife down the side. You can place the corn on a cookie sheet while you do this.
6. Store the corn in ziploc freezer bags removing as much air as possible and lay it flat it in the freezer.
