How do you freeze it yourselves?
You will need:
1 Large pot of boiling water
Lots of ice
Vacuum food sealer or "ziploc" type freezer bags
2 large bowls, one filled with cold water and ice
1 sharp knife (mandalin slicer if you have one)
1 Large spoon
Find your largest pot and fill 2/3 with water and bring to a rolling boil
While water is coming to boil set up large bowl with ice water
Dehusk and silk your corn
Blanch the corn on cob (4-7 minutes, the sweeter the corn the less time)
Remove corn from boiling water and place it in your large bowl with water and ice
cool corn for as long as you cooked it. (6 minute blanch = 6 minute cool down)
If you are keeping the corn on the cob
freezer bag it now
remove as much air as possible
label and date place in freezer
If you are making whole kernel corn
grab ear by the small end
cut down the length of the ear about 2/3 of the way through the kernel (cut into the other empty bowl)
the kernels may stick together like bricks with mortar but they break apart easily.
Bag the corn into your freezer bags
get as much air out as possible
label and date
place in freezer
You can use the boiling water about 5 batches before you need to change it.
Viola you have home made frozen corn in your freezer
to reheat your corn
place bag in microwave for about 3-4 minutes
