How to freeze corn

I love when corn on the cob goes on sale at the store. I personally love corn on the cob better than store bought canned corn. It just tastes better. The problem is, that corn is only in season for so long and then we have to wait until the next season. Well.... Here is how you can have corn on the cob all year round.

First stock up on it a little bit at a time or all at once, depending on your budget, your families needs, and room to store it all. 

Step 1: Shuck the corn
Step 2: Boil 3-4 ears of corn at a time for about 6 minutes. Make sure it's a rapid boil before you start your timer. 
Step 3: With tongs remove the ears of corn from the boiling water and place in a sink full of ice water for 3 minutes. This stops the cooking process. 
Step 4: Drain all of the water off the corn completely. Usually takes 5- 10 minutes. 
Step 5: Cut the corn off the cob. (You can leave it on the cob, but I prefer to cut it off, because it takes up less space in my freezer.)
Step 6: Place in Ziploc bags. For best results try to remove as much air as you can. Spread corn around to make as flat as possible. 
Step 7: Stack packages on top of each other and freeze. Freezes for up to one year.

Pictures below of each step. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
