|My husband loves the stuff. I like it but not as much as he does. It's just us two so I freeze the corn on a small scale. I cooked 3 dozen today in the pressure cooker, cut it off the ear, and added about 1 T of butter for every two ears. I have 12 bags cooling and waiting to going in the freezer.|

|Yep, freezing corn here, too. Did only about 3 doz. ears a few weeks ago, but they were so small, with such shallow kernels, that I felt like I hardly got anything for my trouble. Did about 5 doz. more ears this week, and they were much larger ears. I buy it all from a local lady, and she said this was a better variety for freezing, too. Wish I could remember the name! I peeked in my freezer, and think I still have about 10 pint freezer boxes left from last year, which is just unheard of. Guess that is what happens when I freeze corn together with my mom, and she manages to send me home with a lot more corn than I usually put up! It was the first time we've done it together in about 20 years, so it was fun to relive those old memories! |
Does anyone here put a salt-water solution in their corn? My mom does, and swears it helps prevent freezer burn and prolong how long it lasts in the freezer. I don't care for the taste, myself (which is odd, because I tend to salt my corn lightly before eating it), so I left my boxes of corn "naked." LOL

|I bet that was fun to do corn again with your mom |
We have a couple places we buy corn...the guy on the corner at Walgreens, or on the side of the road outside a small town called Moville. But, we were in a hurry and thought the stuff at wally world looked good so that is what I cooked yesterday. My husband may still make a trip out to Moville.
I normally do add a tiny bit of sugar, salt, and even a little pepper, but this time it is just the butter. We'll see if I notice any difference in the quality after being frozen.

|I didn't do it last year and missed having it during the winter!|
