Let’s Get Shucking

The corn crop in Indiana has been really nice this year. It’s an awesome sight to drive down the country roads lined with corn on both sides. Although Indiana is known for many crops, corn is the main one.

I know I posted how I prepare corn for the freezer last year, but thought I would post it again because of the questions I’ve received recently.

FREEZING CORN

Freezing corn is a pretty simple process.

Shuck all the corn making sure to remove as much silk as possible
Place corn in boiling water for 3-5 minutes
Remove the corn carefully and place in a cold water pan for approximately 10 minutes
Remove from the cold water pan and place the corn on a towel to dry for a few minutes
Place the corn ears in to a freezer bag and remove as much air as possible
Or, if you wish cut the corn carefully from the cob and place in freezer bags.
Corn will keep in the freezer for around one year
