Saving fresh corn for winter is easy! Just blanch, cool and freeze.
Fill the stock pot with water and add about 1 teaspoon of salt to each gallon of water. Bring it to a boil.
While the water is boiling, remove the husks from the corn.
Carefully place each ear in the boiling water and let it cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. You'll see a clear difference in the color.
Remove from the water, drain and cool. If they are not cool enough the steam will create a frost inside the bag that will ruin the flavor of the corn.
When the corn is cool you can freeze it whole (or as half ears) or cut the kernels off and place them in the freezer bag.
Make sure to label and date each bag. And that's it!
