How Long Does It Take To Boil Corn On The Cob On The Stove Top

How Do You freeze fresh corn on the cob?

First, you'll need to husk corn and remove silk. Then blanch the ears of corn. Blanch your corn 3-5 cobs at a time, depending on the size of the corn and the size of your pot.  Place the cobs in boiling water for 5-6 minutes, depending on the size of the cob. Larger cobs will be blanched for a longer time. Start counting your time as soon as the cobs enter the water. Imminently place into ice bath. Wait until completely cooled. If you are freezing it off the cob, cut the kernels from the cob. If you are freezing whole, allow to drain and bag them in 1 gallon bags (4 to 5 ears at a time) (or you can flash freeze by laying them on a cookie sheet and placing them into the freezer bag after an hour or two.) This will keep them from sticking together.  If you are taking the corn off the cob, lay the cut corn out on a cookie sheet and flash freeze, then put into bags either 1 or 2 cups at a time and lay flat to freeze.

How to Freeze Corn - FAQs

Q: Can you freeze corn on the cob without blanching?

A: yes, you can, but I do not recommend it, blanching helps preserve the taste and texture of the corn during freezing. plus,  if you're cutting it off the cob, blanching helps make it a little easier to cut off of the cob.


Q: How long does frozen corn keep in the freezer?

A: 8-12 months. No longer than a year is ideal. If it has been a year,  use it up. I've kept mine in the freezer for longer. Just watch for signs of freezer burn.
