FYI - we just did 9 ears of corn and it yielded 3 quart bags of frozen corn. So 3 ears = 1 quart would be a rough estimate.

It did get a little juicy emoticon but my kids will no longer eat it on the cob.

We have a corn festival here once a year so this will be something I will definitely keep doing, so I can extend it through the winter.

I remember blanching corn when I was a teenager - so it couldn't be that hard! We just did ears, though. Cutting it off the cob sounds like it might get a little messy...

I'm just saying... Kelley

Directions for this was in the Clean Eating magazine. Whole Foods had corn on sale and so I wanted to try this out.

1.) Prepare the ears of corn by stripping off the leaves, etc...

2.) Immerse in boiling water for 1-2 minutes.

3.) Quickly submerge ears in an ice bath.

4.) Either chop into the size of corn on the cobs you want and then freeze or...

5.) Using a knife, slice down the cob, removing the kernals. Spread kernals on a paper towel placed on top of a baking sheet so there is a single layer. Place in freezer and let freeze then remove and place in freezer bags.

Very easy! I'm going to do this more often so I can take advantage of sales. The kids are no longer eating corn on the cob so I'll opt for the kernals and that way I can mix them in other things like stews, relish, or just corn!
