3 Easy Ways to Freeze Corn on the Cob.

 

Imagine it's February.
...snow is falling and the wind is blowing below zero temperatures outside your window.
You are wondering what to make your family for dinner.
How about BBQ sandwiches in the crock pot and corn on the cob.
A taste of summer in the middle of the coldest part of the year.

Yes! That's right...we said corn on the cob.
Straight from our field, to your freezer and then to your table...all winter long.

Did you know our corn freezes nicely and it's so simple to do!
Today we will share three different ways to freeze Twin Gardens's famous corn!

1. Freeze Corn in the Husk.
This is the easiest method.
A lot of our corn consumers take the corn straight out of the green, mesh bag
and put it right into plastic freezer bags keeping it in the husk. When they want to enjoy a piece of corn on the cob, they remove it from the plastic bag, and microwave the corn in the husk for 2-3 minutes.

*It will get soggy if you remove the husk before you microwave, so make sure to keep the husk on until you are finished heating it up.

2. Freezing Corn on the Cob.
Remove corn from the husk.
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop the corn into the boiling water for 1 minute.
Remove corn from boiling water and immediately rinse under cold water.
Package corn into freezer bags. Place in freezer.

3.  Freezing Corn Kernals
While this technically isn't freezing it on the cob, it's a way to freeze corn.
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop the corn into the boiling water for 2 minutes.
Remove corn from boiling water and immediately rinse under cold water.
Cut corn off of the cob and package in freezer bags. Place in freezer.
This is nice when you need corn for a soup or stew!

We still have Twin Garden Mirai at the Farmers Markets and
out at our farm stand in Harvard.
Make sure to get your's before the season is over!
