Freezing Sweet Corn

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

  1. Husk the sweet corn, taking off all of the leaves and silk on the ear.
  2. Put 1 dozen corn in a pot of boiling water for 8 minutes.
  3. After 8 minutes take the corn out and put it in cool water to cool the corn.
  4. Cut the sweet corn off the cob.
  5. 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).
