How to Freeze Corn
When the corn is coming in, we often get this question from our customers. How do you freeze corn?
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Drop shucked ears into boiling water and cook 2-3 minutes. Remove from water to a large bowl full of ice water and let cool a few minutes until you can handle them. Cut kernels off of cobs, spoon into freezer baggies, remove as much air as possible, and seal.
You can also just cut the kernels off without blanching it first, freeze it, and then use it in recipes that call for uncooked corn, or you can saute it.
The first corn of the season usually appears in late May and lasts into October. Brossman’s has delicious super sweet yellow, white, and bi-color “peaches and cream” corn.
Freezing corn is such a great idea! When the hot weather hits and the corn is plenty, you can take advantage of the bounty and freeze some. You will really appreciate it in the winter when you can get a bag or two out of the freezer and use as a side dish or ingredient for dinner. It’s a real time-saver, and tastes great! The flavor brings me right back to summertime.
