    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Do not omit omit the 1/2 cup sugar mixed in at the end, this helps preserve the freezer corn and keeps it firm and crispy, prep time does not include shucking the corn --- also see my Kittencal's Milk Boiled Corn on the Cob

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 20 ear sweet corn on the cob, shucked and silks removed
    • 14.79 ml salt
    • 118.29 ml sugar (mixed in at the end of the process)
    • water


    1. 1
      Using an electic knife or a serrated knife remove the corn kernels from the cob (I use an electric knife for this, it takes less time).
    2. 2
      Place the corn kernels in a large pot; add in water to cover the corn then add in 1 tablespoon salt (add in more water to cover the kernels if needed).
    3. 3
      Bring to a full boil, the reduce heat and boil ONLY until the kernels turn a darker yellow (about 2 minutes, this will not take long).
    4. 4
      Place in a large strainer and rinse under very cold water or plunge into a bowl of ice water.
    5. 5
      Shaking the strainer strain out as much water as possible.
    6. 6
      Mix in 1/2 cup sugar using a wooden spoon until combined with the niblets (this creates a sugar-pac and helps preserve the corn and keeps the corn crisp while freezing).
    7. 7
      Spread the sugar-coated kernels onto a large 15 x 10-inch baking sheet then freeze until completely frozen.
    8. 8
      Place in freezer bags or vacum pac.

      Very easy and as close to fresh taste as you can get with a freezer! After I drained it in a strainer I placed the whole strainer into the ice bath. Thanks for the great recipe!

      Thank you, Kittencal!! This is my 2nd season freezing Olathe sweet corn niblets. This process is simple, and the corn tastes close to fresh as a freezer will allow most of the winter! The dry niblets and sugar coating is absolutely brilliant! Keeps each little niblet fresh & ready for cooking! Going to try the cob freezer recipe this year as well. Thanks again! Nise5280

      I'm giving this a 5 star rating based upon the ease of preparing for the freezer. The Angel Food cake pan idea was amazing!! Can't wait to taste the cooked corn. If KitZ's other recipes that I've made are any indication of this one turning out well---It's a winner, too!
