Warning....this post is a little corny!

On Tuesday night around 5pm...Shawn declared that this was the night that we were going to do our freezer corn. So guess what we did until Midnight? You guessed it.

I had never done freezer corn before, so I searched the internet for ideas. I came across a million and one ways to do it...but we settled on a method where you cut the kernels off the cob first.

We husked 90+ ears of corn, then cut the kernels off

Thank goodness I hadn't given Grandma her large pot back yet. So into the pot went:
7 cups water
12 cups corn
3/4 cup sugar
2 T salt

We tripled the recipe for the first batch and doubled it for the second.

Boil this concoction for up to 5 minutes.
Spread onto cookie sheets to cool
Then bag it up in quart size bags with about 1/4 cup of the juice.
When we were all done, we had about a dozen quart size bags filled to the brim with scrumptious sweet corn that we will truly appreciate this winter.
I would love to hear how you freeze your corn...or any other great food preservation tips that you have :)

  2. Lacie,
    This is actually the recipe I use and was given to me by my Aunt Aldeane (Denny's cousin)....so it is a family recipe...ha. I love this recipe and it keeps the kitchen from getting so hot because you do not have to boil the corn first! Your corn looks yummy! I am sure you will enjoy it this winter. You have a wonderful hubby to help you! Great job!
