Freezing Corn

We purchased a big batch of Colorado sweet corn from our food co-op & so I spent some time on Saturday freezing it. I think we started with about 30 ears of corn.

So here is my process. Drop the ears of corn in a pot of boiling water for 5 min. Pull them out & allow to cool for a few minutes. Then cut the corn from the ears & put desired amount in freezer bags.

When you're ready to eat them. Pull them out of the freezer, put the corn in a microwave safe bowl with a little butter, salt & pepper & pop in the microwave for a few minutes. Tastes so much better than any frozen corn you can get at the grocery store.

We finished with a good stack of bags in the freezer & little niblets of corn all over the kitchen. :)

I have never cooked the corn on the cob and then cut the corn off. I always cut the corn off and then cook the corn and let it cool off before putting it in bags to freeze. May have to try it this way.
