Freezer Sweet Corn Recipe

Whenever I serve this summertime go-to, people can't believe that it's frozen and not fresh. It stays crisp-tender and now I can have "fresh" corn any time of the year. —Judy Oudekerk, St. Michael, Minnesota

MY REVIEW

"Can't wait to try this way. We did ears of corn last summer. I have a Seal-a-Meal. We steamed the corn under a damp towel 4 ears at a time in the microwave-minus the silks. 2mins. Removed the husks put in the bags sealed & froze it. Enjoyed the fruit of labor until Christmas. So good."

MY REVIEW

"I like a little crunch to my frozen corn and boiling for 5 to 7 minutes just leaves...well, no crunch at all. I bring a pan of water to boil, add 4 to 6 ears of corn for 4 minutes (doesn't need to come back to boil...4 mins only). Put the ears in iced, cold water to cool, cut from cob and freeze in bags. Now that's summertime fresh tasting corn from the freezer."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2014

"There is really no need for the added sugar, or the butter. Just blanch the corn while it is still on the cob, then cut kernels from cob. There's less splattering of the 'milk' this way than when corn is cut from cob uncooked. Then bag & freeze. Tastes like fresh corn when reheated. I've been doing it this way for many years."

"This is by far the best corn you will ever taste! It is a little bit of summer that you can have anytime of the year. Just try it, you will not be disappointed."
