  • 8 Corn Cobs
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  1. Husk your corn on the cob and remove the silks. Trim dry ends or tops.
  2. Cut the ear of corn in half for easier storage. This step is optional but I like smaller ears because they store a little easier and are quick to reheat.
  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Stir in salt and sugar.
  4. Add the corn to the pot and boil for 1 minute.
  5. Remove the corn and immediately plunge in an ice water bath to stop the cooking.
  6. Allow the corn to cool in the ice bath before transferring to a paper towel to dry.
  7. Place the corn on the cob in a freezer bag and press out as much air as possible.
  8. Label and store the corn in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Recipe Notes

1 ear of corn yields about 1/2 cup corn kernels
