Preserving Corn - Freezing

I had been looking for a good stock up sale and when I saw in the Giant ad they had corn for $1.99 a dozen, I got excited. The other day, I bought 4 dozen ears. C got so excited when he came home from school and saw a huge box sitting on the table. The boy LOVES corn like his momma does and has been asking for some forever. We ate 6 ears at dinner that night and are having some tonight also. The many ears we don't eat fresh are getting frozen for the winter. Freezing corn is a very easy process. It took me all of 30 minutes to shuck, cook, cut and bag two dozen ears. I was lucky enough to be home alone, otherwise it might have taken just a little bit longer. :)



Boil a large pot of water. Add shucked corn to boiling water. Once water has begun to boil again (it should take no more than one minute) cook corn for 4 minutes.


Remove from water (add your next batch of shucked corn and begin timing now) and let cooked corn cool. Say that 5 times fast!! LOL


Cut corn off cob. Some people have nifty little corn cutter things. I just used a knife.



Let corn cool and add to baggies. Freeze.



Enjoy fresh sweet corn all winter long!
(When you go to eat your corn, you don't need to cook it, just reheat!)
