Let me tell you that freezing corn is not my favorite thing to do, especially when it comes to discovering wildlife between the kernels (and this does happen). However, I like the taste of homemade frozen corn better, not to mention that it’s a lot more economical if you are going to grow it anyway. In any case, we don’t use it very much – mainly as a side for smothered chicken and an ingredient in chili and tamale pie.

Completely agree with the more mature ears for cutting off cob. I prefer to freeze only corn to be eaten on the cob (using vacuum sealer) and either pressure can or dehydrate corn cut from the cob. Diversity is wise when preserving food. Pressure canning gives cut corn a wonderful caramel look and flavor and dehydrating means food takes up less space and is light weight (good for camping). Early or late in the season when I’m getting small quantities at a time, I prefer to dehydrate and throw everything together in a jar as soup mix. For cut corn, use either the fruit leather tray or cheesecloth to keep pieces from falling through.
