Freeze Your Own Corn

Have you ever wanted to freeze your own corn? Well maybe the thought never crossed your mind, but it's really easy to do, and it costs less than buying frozen corn.

During the summer, corn can get pretty cheap at the store. For us lately, it's gone down to 20 cents an ear. So I've been buying a few ears a week and freezing up for later use. There is a quick method for freezing corn so it comes out its best, and I'll share with you what I've learned.

You could use your home grown corn if you have it, but my crop is pathetic so I have to resort to buying it.

 Start by filling a pot a little over halfway full of water. Cover and bring it to a boil.

Husk your corn and make sure it's free of all the little hairs.

When your water is at a full boil, place about 3-4 ears in at a time. Boil for about 5 minutes.

Remove your corn and immediately place in a bowl of ice water. Leave them in there for about 5 minutes.

Once they've cooled, cut the corn off the cob.

Store in a freezer bag.

Zip, Zip, it's that easy. Enjoy your corn whenever you want it.
