This was so easy to do. I have the following tips:
1) use a cake pan or something with sides on it to cool it in...otherwise it's messy to bag up...it doesn't stay inside the cookie sheet because the sides aren't high enough
2) I had the best luck with a wide spatula...it scoops nicely and it's square so it fits the sides of the pan..and it scrapes the bottom well too
3) leave room in the individual bags for it to expand when it freezes
4) don't put it into the freezer until it has cooled or the temp of your freezer temp will drop
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe...and I will really be thanking you this winter! :)
My Grandmother in Indiana used to do this so there would be good corn for dinner in the winter. Its so good and it tastes so fresh compared to canned corn! Thanks for bringing back memories
Delicious! I ended up with 20 cups of corn so I used 3/4 c. of sugar, 4 T. of water and only 2 t. of salt and thought it was perfect. Faster & cheaper than doing it my normal way (with sweet butter & half & half). A keeper for sure. Thanks for posting!
I am so happy to use my new food saver with this recipe! I did feel like it was a bit salty and took away from the flavor of the corn the first time I made it so the second time I had 10 c fresh corn and used 1/8 c sugar, 1 Tbs + 2 tsp water and 2 tsp salt. Also boiled about 7 min. It turned out perfect for us! Thanks
This is great! I love how easy it can be. I loved the tip about using the electric knife and the angel food pan. It worked wonders for me! I knew my grandma and aunts did it that way, but had forgotten until I saw it here. Definitely glad I picked up an electric knife at a garage sale for $1, it saved my life! Can't wait to eat this all winter long!! I canned pickles and salsa this weekend too, and this by far, was the easiest to do! It's nice to be able to do in steps, like if you have small kids like me.
I use this recipe every fall, it's great. A great tip for cutting the corn off the cobs: Stand the corn up on the center of your angel food cake pan. Using an electric knife slice the corn off the cobs. It falls right into the cake pan. A lot easier on your arms! I usually put this into my turkey roaster and put in the oven at 300F for about 1/2 an hour to an hour or til cooked, stirring occasionally.
I remember as a kid having to help my mother cut all the corn off the cob. My arms got tired. I hated it. But it sure tasted good in the winter!
