A Little Messy – But Very Easy Recipe for Freezing Corn
With this recipe, there is no boiling or blanching. Just clean the corn by removing the husk and silk tassels. Cut the corn off the cob. Season and place in a baking pan. Bake, cool, and bag. Done!
This a simple way to preserve your corn!
Preparing the Corn for Freezing
In the photo, it shows the corn in the husk with the silk tassels on it yet. Make sure to remove the husk and all of the silk tassels before the next step.
Normally, I do this outside. However, I save the husk as our animals at the farm love eating this. As soon as they smell what is in the paper bags, the animals get very excited as they know they are getting an extra treat.
Cut The Sweet Corn off the Cob
Cut the raw corn off the cob. To do this, there are a few ways you can try. Find the one that works for you.
Hold the corn upright and use a sharp knife to run down the side of the corn. Turn a little and run the knife down the side of the corn again.. Continue to do this until the corn is cut off the cob. Scoop up the corn kernels with a bench scraper and place them in a large bowl.
You could place a cutting board in a cookie sheet. Hold the corn in the large bowl and let the kernels fall right into the bowl. Additionally, some people have had success using a bundt pan and pushing the corn cob through the center hole. This allows the kernels to fall into the bundt pan.
Ingredients in Freezer Corn
- Fresh Picked Corn: Make sure that the corn is fresh. Look for good color and plump looking kernels. Corn cobs that have dented in kernels is already starting to dry out. Choose a sweet corn that you enjoy the taste. There are so many varieties to choose from; white, yellow, white and yellow combination.
- Butter: When eating fresh boiled corn on the cob, I always add real butter. combine this with the sugar, salt, and sweet corn and you have a delicious side dish.
- Granulated Sugar: Sugar adds just a bit more sweetness to the corn. I add a bit of sugar to my kettle when boiling fresh corn. Check out my recipe for boiled corn.
- Iodized Table Salt: The salt adds an extra flavor to the corn, just like the sugar does. A little goes a long way. .
