When the corn comes in, it is so good that you get sick of eating it. These instructions for freezing that goodness will allow you to enjoy it all year long.
- Sort corn into similar sizes:
- Fill a large pot 2/3 full with water. Bring to a boil.
- Fill another large pot, or bowl, with ice water.
- Husk corn; remove the silk with a gentle brush; remove all bad spots.
- Small – 1 1/4 inch diameter
- Medium – 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch diameter
- Large – over 1 1/2 inch diameter
- Blanche corn in boiling water according to sizes. Start timing as soon as the corn enters the water.
- Small – 7 minutes
- Medium – 9 minutes

Cool corn in ice bath for same time as blanching.
