Gardening is something you learn by doing---and by making mistakes....
Like Cooking, Gardening is a constant process of experimentation, repeating the successes and throwing out the failures.

Freezing Corn

Fresh corn on the cob is sooo good, too bad we can enjoy it year 'round.....oh wait, we can!
Freezing corn lets us enjoy those sweet little kernels all winter (providing you freeze enough).  Some people freeze the whole ear, but that takes up too much space in my freezer.  I cut the corn from the cob and freeze it in quart bags, they stack very well.

Freezing Corn

Shuck the corn and rinse
Blanch corn in boiling water for 5-6 minutes
Submerge corn in cold water to cool and stop the cooking process.
When corn is cool enough to handle, use a sharp knife  to cut kernels from the cob.
Put 2 cups of corn into a quart size  freezer baggie.  Flatten baggies so they stack easily and remove the air.....and freeze.

I use Ziploc Vacuum Baggies
Blanch corn 5-6 minutes
Cut away kernels
Fill baggies and express the air
