Alice’s Freezer Corn

bagging the cornMany years ago my sous chef dish-washing mom found a recipe for freezer corn that makes all other recipes not even worth the time it takes to work the corn! Each summer friends and family contact mom for this recipe.  I apologize it has taken me so long to share it with you.

Our Chief gardener tills the garden, plants the seeds, waters, fertilizes, sprays for bugs, and then after picking the corn he shucks it for us!

My part is easy since I use an electric knife to slice off the peaches and cream, white and yellow kernels.

Cooling the corn
After adding butter, sugar, salt, and water we bring the corn to a boil and cook it for 3 minutes.  After that an ice bath cools the corn quickly so that it is ready to bag for the freezer.

Bagged corn
We place the corn into quart zipper bags, laying them flat and carefully pushing out all the air.  The bags then go to the freezer.  They will last up to 1 year without getting icy when bagged like this.  Filling them flat also makes stacking them in the freezer very easy.

When ready to use the corn, simply thaw for a little while and then heat, cooking it for at least 20 minutes or longer if you have time.  No other ingredients need to be added.

This corn is so delicious that it won’t last in the freezer until next year, no matter how many quarts you freeze!

Many blessings for a bountiful harvest!

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

  1. I am excited to try this method for freezing corn. I am going to Nebraska this weekend and hoping to bring back some corn and wanted to try freezing some to enjoy this winter. Thanks for posting!

  2. This is a wonderful recipe, have done this for years. We have a corn farm about 15 min from us. Buy several boxes and spend a couple of days. Simply wonderful ! Our corn season is just now ending. Was very good this year, cool temps and rain.

I'd love to hear from you ~ Comments welcome!
