I love HARVEST time... after planting the garden, watering, weeding, & weeding.... comes the harvest!! But along with the YUMMY produce to eat- comes the WORK! Freezing corn can be quite the process.
When I was first married I did it like my Mother had taught me..... husking, washing, blanching in a pot of boiling water, putting it into a sink of ice water, cutting it off of the HOT ears, bagging & freezing! Whew..
Then I started doing it a much easier way.... and I have been doing it like this for 30 years.
|First you need fresh corn!!|
|then cut each ear of corn at both ends like this... it makes it easier to peel the husks off. This is a great job for the kids to do.|
|because the corn isn't cooked it can be a little messy when you cut it off, so if you cut the bottom inch off on a cutting board first|
