Now is a perfect time to freeze sweet corn if you haven’t already. Our family froze sweet corn this week. We have a good supply of sweet corn at our roadside stand in Arkansaw and the Eau Claire Downtown Farmer’s Market. See our process below.
Along with sweet corn we have a good supply of cucumbers (see our refrigerator pickles recipe here), zucchini, potatoes, onions, muskmelon, and tomatoes available. We also have a limited supply of watermelon and green bell peppers available.
We will be at the Eau Claire Downtown Farmer’s Market Wednesday and Saturday morning from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. and Thursday afternoon from noon until 5 p.m.
Freezing Sweet Corn
- Husk the sweet corn, taking off all of the leaves and silk on the ear.
- Put 1 dozen corn in a pot of boiling water for 8 minutes.
- After 8 minutes take the corn out and put it in cool water to cool the corn.
- Cut the sweet corn off the cob.
- Put the cut off sweet corn in freezer bags (The Sam’s use 3 cups of sweet corn in each bag).
On average 1 Baker’s Dozen of corn will yield about 8 cups (varies depending on the size of the ear).
