Corn Off the Cob

A year or so ago we read in Mother Earth News this really great tip for keeping corn.  All you have to do is cut the corn from the cob and freeze it.  You don't have to blanch it just cut and freeze.  We got some corn from a local supplier (we had some the other night and it was delicious) so we thought we would go back and get some more to freeze and have over the winter.

We use a seal a meal type system to freeze the corn.  We added about 2 cups per bag and ended up with 6 bags of corn for the freezer.  When you are ready to use just thaw it out a little dump it into a pan and cook just like you normally would for frozen corn.  Trust me when I say that this will be the best frozen corn you will ever eat in your life.  It tastes just like you were eating corn on the cob.

Put a cookie sheet down with a cutting board on top to cut the corn.

I had to show these 2 ears of corn.  Corn is normally tapered to one end.  These get fatter on the end.  The bottom of the corn is on the right side and what would be the tapered end on the left.  I will call this alien corn.
