    This brings back memories of my Mom and me standing at the sink cutting kernels off the cob, getting ready to freeze corn. This recipe is a tried and true Southern favorite, and in my book, it even beats the taste of fresh corn on the cob. Another step I remember my mom taking: after cutting the kernels off the cob, she turned her knife, blunt side down and scraped the remaining "milk" from the cob into the rest of the corn before cooking. It produces a cream-style corn that is simply delicious. Thanks, Inez for a great "memory recipe"!

    I love to cut corn off the cob. My Mom used to do it. Boy do I have lots of corn. This went great and also easy as can be. Lots of fun for me. Just take a bag out of the freezer and open the bag and pour into pot. You have the very best tasting corn ever ever. Thank You

    I've made it year's ago. Just forgot how . It was very good did it on the campfire keep the heat outside.

    I used this recipe to put up corn last summer when it went on sale. It was really good and the corn was still pretty crisp. I did cut down the sugar (dh and I are diabetic) but it was still great. Thanks for sharing.

    Just made this today as directed and it turned out great! We had some for supper and it seriously was the perfect blend, not too sweet or buttery. Will have to update the review after we try it frozen. The longest part of course was taking the corn off the cob, but I used an electric knife which definitely helped. Cooled on cookie sheets then put in freezer bags. Thanks for sharing!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
