Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Freezer Corn

Freezer Corn

A little over a week ago, my parents were visiting us. They brought 34 ears of corn with them and gave them all to us. I like corn, but there's no way we can eat 34 ears of corn before they go bad. Instead of wasting what we did not eat, I decided to preserve the taste of summer by freezing the corn. It's SO EASY to preserve corn. If you are given extra corn cobs, make freezer corn.


  1. Place a pot of water on the stove and bring to boil.
  2. Meanwhile, shuck all the corn. (If you have extra helpers, AKA children, put them to use and have them shuck the corn.) Take as much as the silk off the corn as possible.
  3. Once the water has boiled, place corn cobs in boiling water. Boil for 3-4 minutes. After boiling, place the corn cobs in ice water.
  4. Cut the kernels off the corn cobs. Place kernels in freezer safe bags.
Have you ever made freezer corn? This post was written as one of the prompts for the summer blogging challenge by social insiders.


  1. We did something very similar growing up!

  2. It's such a good idea to freeze produce while it's in season and inexpensive!

  3. Yes I have froze corn like this when we have had an abundance. Tastes so good in the winter.
