When the corn is picked out of the fields and arrive in the produce stands, I normally buy a bushel. This starts the long tedious process of husking, washing and slicing the kernels off the cob. I blanch the kernels and transfer them to seal and meal bags, so I can enjoy fresh picked corn all winter.
This process is long and tiring, it can literally take an entire day in the kitchen.
This year I decided there must be a better way to process the corn, an easier way that sets me free from a day in the kitchen.
I came across the idea of freezing the corn , husk and all after talking with a local farmer.
You simply clean up each end, by cutting off a few inches.
Place up to 6 ears in your seal a meal bag, and seal the ends.
By placing the corn in the bag nice and snug this prevents air pockets and helps the freezing to be uniform.
The seal a meal corn will keep up to 1 year in the freezer
You will want to completely thaw the corn out, prior to cooking, so the husk and silks come off easily.
