Freezing Corn on the Cob

Nothing says summer like fresh corn on the cob.  And right now is the perfect time for buying.  And the more you buy, the cheaper it is.  However, there are only 2 of us living in our house right now, and there's only so much fresh corn two people can eat at once.

I started investigating how I could freeze some of the corn, to enjoy later, without having to go through all the work of blanching it etc.  I found these instructions below.

Start with a fresh ear of corn, stalk, leaves, silks and all.

Cut off both ends with a sharp knife making sure you don't cut into the actual kernel area.

Remove any lose leaves.

Place on a piece of tin foil, big enough to completely cover the entire cob of corn.

Wrap the individual ears of corn in the tin foil.  Freeze, and enjoy later.

A bonus of doing this - if you are someone who likes to roast their corn in the leaves, all you have to do is pop it in the oven, or BBQ or firepit, without any other prep.  If you prefer, once you remove from the freezer and thaw (for about 2 hours), then you can just boil in water as usual.


Time to prep for the "Dingo's Den Burger Throwdown" this evening, where I'm a judge.  Details to follow.
