We always get a hatchet and cut the end with the worm off about 1 1/2 inches. Pull about three layers of husk off and row it in the freezer with nothing over it. Always have a couple of rows on one end of the freezer and works great and can boil, grill, use in soup or make cream style corn. If you are not to sure about this put about ten ears in the freezer. Make sure you don't peel the husk way down near the kernel are it will freezer burn. Works great give it a try and good luck.

They corn has been given to me already shucked and cleaned. Can I wrap the corn in clear wrap or foil and freeze them? Please help me!

I blanch them shucked and cleaned and cut into about 4 to 4 1/2 inch pcs.
I let the water boil, then add the corn and when the water begins to boil again (about 5 to 7 minutes) I remove from the heat and begin cooling them in cold water.
After they are thoroughly cooled, I bag them in water in 1 gallon zip lock baggies.
I stand the cobs in the baggy in two rows of 4 or 5 cobs (8 to 10 per bag), then add just enough water to cover most of the bottom row.
Partially seal the baggy and suck as much air out of the baggy as you can, seal and lay flat in freezer.
Hope this helps!

Tory, Why do you put water in the bag when you frezze the corn?

I'll go along with farmerjosh. Wrap each husked cob in foil. I always butter and salt it too so I can pull it out of the freezer and throw it on the grill.

we always blanch the ears first and put them in plastic bags getting as much air out as possible

We do the same here. Good way to get the air out is wrap each ear in saran/plastic wrap before you bag them.

All we ever do is clean the cobs up good and through then in a plastic bag or wrap them in freezer wrap, right or wrong they still taste better than store bought frozen cob's when Jan. rolls around.

grandma always said to wrap each ear seperately in aluminum foil.....always worked for her

If my experience counts, pack it behind my wife in the wintertime! You can even pre-chill it between her feet if you want to get technical :)

Do I have to blanch fresh corn on the cob before I freeze it and for how long do I keep it in the boiling water?
