How to Freeze Corn
Freezing Corn | How To
It's that time of year. The corn fields have grown and are thrilling to get lost in ... the kernels are sweet like candy and cannot be resisted and in my home, they make it in to just about every meal.
Another Summer memory creeps its way back in my world ... Shucking, sneaking bites off of the cutting boards and "helping" to freeze the corn so we can all reminisce on days of sunshine and fresh produce in the colder Winter months.
Below is a step by step on how to freeze corn with your family or friends this Summer. So - Good!
Massive Bag of the sweetest corn you can find (farmers markets will sell 25lb bags to you)
Ziplock Baggies (1 qt)
1 Permanent Marker
1 or 2 Large Pots
Knives (lg + pearing)
Rose - for drinking of course
First, get to shucking that corn + removing it's little silks away
Soak in cool water that is in a large bowl for a few minutes
Bring a large pot of water to boil and boil as much corn will fit in there for 4 minutes (no longer)
Take out and place in a large bowl of ICE water until the corn cob is cool
Cut kernels off of ear (standing the corn cob vertically, slide knife down close to core)
Make sure to scrape the corn cob after the kernels are removed for all of that juice too
Put all kernels in to a bowl
Scope kernels into ziplock bags (2 cup / 4 cup servings)
Push air out of ziplock / Zip up...
Layflat + Write the date on the bag.
Keep bags laid out flat and put in freezer.
VUALA - sweet treats for all of the cold months to come!
