I do, and have done A LOT of canning, freezing, and dehydrating of any and all fruits and veggies I can get a hold of, and I must say that this is by far the easiest and the best technique I have ever used! Just a suggestion; while allowing the corn to cool and dry, place a hand towel into a bowl, then place a colander on top of the hand towel inside the bowl... then put the cooked corn in standing on end to allow the water to run down and thru the colander slots. The cobs seemed to dry and cool much faster that way. Other than that, this is fantastic! I used this same method last year and the frozen corn we had tonight tasted the same as that in the bowl that I was currently working on! Thank you so much for sharing!
I put up 20 dozen ears of silver queen white corn last month and followed the directions exactly (without the salt) and let me tell you!! Its fantastic!! I just pull a zipock freezer bag out of the freezer, break it up into a bowl and microwave for a couple of minutes. The corn is just as good as the day i froze it. Crisp and super sweet. I am thinking i might need to go and get about 10 or so more dozen because this wont last in our house. My dad keeps sneaking up here and getting a quart size bag every week. I will NEVER do corn any other way EVER!! As far as i am concerned there is no other way but this way. I cant thank you enough for this recipe especially when it gets to be winter and i can pull a little but of summer out of the freezer. This is the best recipe i have ever used from Zaar!! UPDATE: Its now December and i still have corn and its still just as crisp and flavorful as it was the day i froze it. Not soggy at all!
Received a load of fresh garden sweet corn from a generous neighbor and needed to figure out a way to save it. Went looking and found this recipe. Thank you sooooo much it worked like a charm and with your wonderful hint of using the angel food pan was a lot easier shaving off the kernels than I thought it would be. From 14 ears of corn I got 7 bags, not bad. I also used whipnspur29's hint with the dish towel and colander and that worked well too. The finished product has that lovely sweet, buttered corn flavor. When I was done with all those corn cobs I made Corn Cob Jelly and it's wonderful too. Then fed the remaining cobs to the wild deer that visit our yard daily. All in all a successful harvest of corn this year. Thanks so much for posting.
This is the BEST recipe ever. First time I have ever tried freezing corn. I blanched it in the dishwasher (don't have a big pot); loved didn't have to put in ice water just let cool on towel. Then followed this recipe. This corn is to die for. It tasted like it had just come off the cob even a year later. So very, very good and this novice had no problems with it. Couldn't believe how quick I did over 36 ears.
I've done 3 batches of corn already and I just know that it will not be enough to last the winter....this is a winner recipe....just wish that I had bought more corn ! Thanks for sharing....I'll start earlier next year!
Kgsunshine, I'm dying of curiosity. How do you blanch with a dishwasher? I've never heard of such a thing.
Simple directions and easy to make.
Angel food cake pan - genius. Very easy.
This was so easy and delicious. Will do again!
So many smart tips in one recipe - thanks! Loved using the angel food pan and adding a little butter like this is a great idea. We just put up a few dozen ears today - can't wait to try them in December-January!
