In summer I try to stock up on corn because we love corn on the cob and with the amount of freezer space we have I can do it. I usually buy 15 dozen just for corn on the cob. Me and the girls set ourselves up near the end of the table, making a square with the table as the fourth side, we out a box lined with a garbage bag between us, put the canning on it's side and stack the shucked corn in there, I have a large pot on the stove with boiling water, then once the pot is full then I pour the water over top and bring back to a boil for I think it is 8 minutes then use tongs to put them in to a very clean sink and layer with ice and top off with cold water, once they are cool then I put them into the other sink on a cake rack to drain. Then pack into FoodSaver bags. I have a spot in the freezer just for corn where I stack it on it's side. The water from the canner goes back into the pot and gets reused until we are done. I usually use 1 bag of store bought ice per canner full of corn. I usually get 2 1/2 dozen in. We do 5 dozen in 2 hours.

I will put some pics in my profile if you want to see what I am trying to explain. lol

We boil ours and eat it on the cob.

When I was a kid, I used to put margarine on mine, but my husband pointed out that we make corn oil from corn and told me that I don't need the extra fat. You know what? He's right. I think the corn tastes sweeter plain.

However, NATAZOEL's recipe sounds delicious. I think I may try that sometime. (Or maybe use onions instead of leeks, because I am more apt to have them in the house.)

on the cob! Hands down the best corn is grilled and then munched down on the cob. (-:

Sautéed in a little olive oil with leeks and fresh homegrown tomatoes and served over grilled fish. Yum.

Corn is in season for many of us now, and earlier this week Chef Meg posted some recipes on the dailySpark.
