In this post I want to show you how to freeze corn. Corn is in season and it is sweet, delicious and inexpensive.
It is important to blanch the corn before you freeze it or it will become tough. Blanching allows you to have perfect results. It is also important that you do not over boil the corn. You do not want to cook it. You simply want to boil it for a few minutes and then stop the cooking process completely before you proceed.
You can freeze your corn on the cob, cut into pieces or only the kernels. You decide what you would like to make with it in the future. Frozen corn kernels are great for stir fries and soups.
This is an easy process that will allow you to enjoy corn all year round.
This is what you are going to need to freeze corn:
Water and Ice Cubes
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil.
Peel the corn and remove all the silk.
Prepare a large boil with ice water.
Line a baking sheet with paper towels.
Place corn into the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes.
Immediately remove blanched corn and place it into the ice water. Cool down completely.
Place cold corn onto the paper towels and dry down completely. You can freeze them whole, cut into pieces or remove the kernels.
Place into sealed freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
