How to Freeze Corn

A great way to taste that fresh from the cob flavor!  Freezing Corn -Vickie's Kitchen and Garden

The corn is ready in Michigan!  We went to our favorite roadside stand and bought 8 ears of corn for $1.00 yesterday.   Freezing corn is the way to go for me, it's so easy and delicious.   To taste that wonderful flavor in the winter can not be beat.

I would love to say that I grow corn in my backyard and that is comes out all perfect and ready to eat. After picking many weird looking ears of corn I've decided to save my garden space for things that grow well there.

This recipe calls for 16 ears of corn.   You can adjust the recipe for how many you have:

First I took my corn off the cob.

To the large pot of corn kernels add 1 tsp. salt, 2 cups water, and 6 Tbsp. sugar.  Stirring constantly, boil 5 minutes.

Just put the corn in plastic freezer bags ready to be frozen-Vickie's Kitchen and Garden

With a slotted spoon drain most of the water off and put into freezer quart sized bags.   Freeze flat on a cookie sheet for a couple of hours.   When it's completely frozen pack into gallon freezer bags.
