We braved the muddy garden and went out and picked corn to freeze. The garden has had a rough go this year from all the rain and storms that have passed through our area.
We picked a little over 5 dozen ears. We wanted to freeze 5 dozen and eat the rest for supper.
After shucking them, we cut the corn off the cob with a knife. Our corn (serendipity) is so pretty.
You put one stick of butter, one cup of water and 4 Tablespoons of sugar into your large pot. Turn on the heat, stir to melt the butter and dissolve the sugar.
When the butter has melted, add 10 cups of cut off the cob corn and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes.
Empty into a large container to cool. I sit my containers on those reusable blue ice packs that you use in your lunch box to keep things cold.
After the corn cools, I put them in freezer bags. I put 2 cups in each one. The 5 dozen ears of corn made 16 containers to put in the freezer.
The corn is delicious frozen this way. We just had a reunion and I brought some to it that I had put up last year, and everyone loved it. Still tasted great!
Just take from the freezer, thaw and heat. No need to add extra butter, only salt if you want to. I don't even add salt to mine.

Enjoy making memories in the kitchen!
