I had a friend ask me how to make Freezer Corn so I thought I would share this post again. As you can tell by the photos this post was written and first published several years back.  Look how cute and little my kids are 🙂 But I did update it with some better images of the finished product, feel free to pin them!

008

Growing up in large family, my Mom made sure we knew how to take our produce and can or freeze it.  So I learned how to make freezer corn at a young age.  In doing this we were able to save hundreds of dollars a year.  My Dad is a farmer, he normally grows  corn that is called field corn, which grows VERY tall.  It is grown to chop up, stalks and all to feed to our dairy cows.  But my Dad also grows a few large rows of sweet corn, which my whole family looks forward to every year.  If you have ever had fresh tender sweet corn picked right from the field, it is so yummy.  Nothing like what you buy from the store.

007

This year my Dad picked me a large sack of corn.  It is now time for me to teach my little ones how to make freezer corn, just as my parents taught me.  So we shucked the corn out on the lawn, to keep the mess outside.  My kids were such good little helpers!  They got the giggles every time one of the ears of corn had lots of corn silk, they would say ” yuck I got a hairy one”

016

After about 30 mins we were able to bring the cleaned corn back into the house to get it ready to cook.

021

In a large pot bring you water up to a boil, then add in your corn.  In my pot I was able to do about 10 at a time.  The corn is cold so it will take a minutes for the water to start to boil again, after it comes back to a boil cook it for 3-5 minutes.

019

After 3-5 mins, take out of the pot and  put in a sink full of ice water.  This will cool the corn down and let you handle it better.

020

After a few minutes in the ice water, take out and put on a towel to drain the water off.

017

Take your knife and run it down the corn cob and cut all the corn off.

018

I then take about 2 1/2 cups of corn, and put it into a quart sized freezer bag.  Try to get out as much of the air as you can, then seal it closed.  They will need to lay flat till they are cooled to room temp. At this point you just need to write the date on it and stack it in your freezer.  I was able to get 21 bags of corn.  This is one of my families favorites, and we look forward to eating it over the next year!

When you get ready to cook it, take it out of the freezer. You can thaw it in the refrigerator the day before, but I do not normally think ahead like that. So I cook it a glass container with a lid on high for 5-7 minutes.  I season it with butter, salt and pepper and sometimes a little bbq sauce.

Update* Now that my family has grown, I put 4 cups into a gallon freezer bag.  This is enough for a side for a larger family.

022It did take some work, but it was FREE and well worth the time. Hope you take the time to try this out, not that you know how to make freezer corn.

Right by the sugar beat factory in Nampa they have an open lot, the Simpsons have sold there for years. In the open lot across the street, it is AMAZING corn if we are over that direction we always stop and get some. Hope that helps Katie Potter

If you don’t own a vacuum sealer, you can place the bag in water with a majority of it sealed and water will put enough pressure on the bag to push the air out of the bag. Then you seal the rest of the bag. It’s a great trick!

Just remember that corn is a grain, not a vegetable. If you serve you still need to serve lots of veggies.
