Sweet corn
[Return to Topics]

Can anyone here tell me the easiest way to freeze sweet corn? Do you cook it first, and then cut it off the cob, or do you cut it off first, and then cook it?

I cut the corn off the cob and bake it in a roaster pan for an hour.

I'm going to be the odd man out, here. My grandmother never blanched her sweet corn before freezing it, but I tried that once and it turned mushy and weird. I did some reading and found there is an enzyme present in corn that can cause the problems I experienced. So, ever since, I have blanched my corn, then placed it in ice water, drain, and package for freezing.

Now you tell me, already put 4 quarts in the freezer, I think I will leave it, and consider it an experiment. thank you.

Sorry about that - I was typing as fast as I could!

May your experience with corn be the same as my grandmother's. LOL Enjoy your corn this winter!

A big thank you to both of you, I guess I thought it had to be cooked before you froze it so as to destroy the bacteria or something.
Now, if it doesn't rain ,I will head out to the patch and get started, so there won't be as much to do when the wife gets home after a tough day at work.
Best looking crop of corn I've raised in a long time!

No I don't cook mine first either. This is the way my mom always did it.

Hi, I usually cut it off the cob first then freeze it. I don't cook it first...speaking from experience. LOL

I cut the kernels off first then scrap the cob for the milky part then put in freezer bags. Thats it. My kids love it.

You don't cook it before freezing?
