How to Freeze Corn

We found a local farmer who has the most delicious sweet corn.  I decided I wanted some year round, so it was time to learn how to freeze corn.  I bought a bushel of corn which is about 70 ears.  We ate and shared more than half of it and froze the rest.

Freezing corn is not a difficult process.  You will need to “blanch” it before freezing it.  This means you need to cook the corn a bit to stop the enzymes from breaking down the corn while in storage.



What you’ll need:

Vegetable Brush
Large Bowl
Lots of Ice (You may want to buy a bag if you are freezing several dozen ears)
Bundt Pan
Sharp Knife
Freezer Bags
