How to Freeze Corn on the Cob
I love corn on the cob.  It’s absolutely my favorite food.  I also absolutely love when there is a GREAT deal on corn on the cob.  I love to buy loads of it when it goes on sale, but we can only eat so much of it at once. I decided it was time to figure out how to freeze corn on the cob, so then we could just grab it and have it on a whim (and when it wasn’t on sale).

How to Freeze Corn on the Cob:

Boil a pot of water big enough to fit your corn in.
Shuck the corn and get it all cleaned up nicely.
Put your corn in the pot of boiling water.
You just want to boil it for 5 minutes.
Take your corn out and put it in a large freezer safe zipper type bag.
Date the bag so you make sure to use it within 2-3 months

How to Cook your Frozen Corn on the Cob:
Boil a pot of water big enough to fit your  corn in.
Once boiling, put your corn in the water.
Let it boil/cook for about 7-10 minutes.

How to Freeze Corn on the Cob
Our corn stayed in the freezer for about 3 1/2 weeks.  I was seriously unsure of how it was going to taste.  I was worried it’d be weird and just not nice and crisp and wonderful.  Guess what?  It was totally good!!  It really did work and I totally plan on doing it again.  It was great!

    My parents always froze corn. But we would buy humongous amounts of it and do the quick cook (like 5 minutes) and then we would cut the corn off of the cob with a big knife and then freeze that instead. We did it in large amounts like hundreds of corn on the cob but you can do smaller amounts and for a less messy time put the corn on the cob on the hole of a bundt pan and then cut it off. All the corn will fall into the pan and make less of a mess. It is fun to eat it straight off the cob but takes up WAY less space if you cut it off.
