I have put up fresh summer corn for years, but this is the best freezer corn recipe I've ever had. It came from a Co-Op cookbook.

Ingredients

  • 12
    cups corn, cut off the cob (not whole kernel, scrape the cob with knife to be sure and get all the good "juice" from it)
  • 8 Tbsp
    butter
  • 2 c
    sweet milk (2% is fine)
  • 1/2 c
    sugar

How to Make Freezing Fresh Corn

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all ingredients together and place in a large pot. Bring to boil, SLOWLY, as corn will burn easily. Turn down heat and simmer 10 minutes, stirring almost constantly. This will take a while as you are bringing this to a boil slowly so as not to burn. Take off heat and let cool in container. (Put hot container on a towel so as not to burn counter, etc.) When cool, place in freezer containers and freeze. NOTE: To cook - thaw, not necessary to thaw completely. Place in microwave safe container. Microwave 5 minutes, stir well, microwave another 5 minutes, stir. Add about 2 tablespoons butter (bacon drippings if you prefer), salt, pepper. Microwave another 4 minutes. If your corn is not thick enough for you, mix about a teaspoon of cornstarch and some water and add to corn before last cooking. If you prefer to cook it on top of the stove, that's fine, just cook a little longer on low, stirring often.
  2. NOTE: Try Peaches 'n Cream Corn, it's delicious and freezes well.
