Corn!

I love sweet corn, love, love it! It is one of my favorite things about summer. I had the opportunity on Friday to go pick organic, sweet corn for a ridiculously low price. I was allowed to pick three dozen so I did. I read up on how to freeze it here, and learned a terrific way to cut it of the cob here.

I spent a little time yesterday afternoon preserving some of it.

Here it is getting blanched.

Then dunked in ice water.

Then de-cobbed.  Everything I read said not to freeze it on the cob.  Cutting it off was much easier than I anticipated and the upside down bowl in a larger bowl trick was very helpful.

Ez woke up from nap right as I was starting the process, turns out the boy loves corn on the cob.

Daddy showing him proper technique.

Wouldn’t put it down to color.

Noah did not share his brother’s love for corn on the cob, but he did eat plenty that I had cut off the cob.  I think Ezra ate three ears of corn all by himself.

  1. Seems like all we can get here is sweet corn and I am not a fan. I’m ready for some good old midwest farm corn on the cob.

  2. When it’s really cheap – like 10 or 12 for a dollar, I buy a ton, husk it, wash it, air dry it, and freeze it. When we’re ready to eat it I just pop the frozen cobs into boiling water – and it tastes no different thatn fresh!
