DIY: Freezing Corn

After our adventure to a Produce Auction we had some work to do in regards to preserving this fresh produce for the coming months.

We shucked the corn and boiled water to blanch the corn for 2-3 minutes.

After allowing the corn to boil for 2-3 minutes, we then placed the ears of corn in a ice water bath.  (Most of the ice had melted by the time I took this picture.)  Another blog I read mentioned freezing water in old butter containers or the like to have larger chunks of ice to cool the water that wouldn't melt as quickly as ice cubes.  You place the corn in the ice water to stop the cooking process.

We then placed the corn in a bowl until we were ready to cut the kernels off the cob.

After removing the kernels from the cob, we placed 3 cups of corn in each quart size freezer bag.

All of our loot from the Produce Auction ready for our new deep freeze.
