Questions & Answers - How To Freeze Corn On The Cob
if you could freeze corn on the cob in the husk. We love it grilled
and I was wondering if there was a way to do that. Thank you for
your time. - Teresa (7/31/05)
For long term freezer
storage, it is always recommended to blanch your corn before
freezing. Blanching retards the enzymes that cause deterioration and
spoilage in foods.
To freeze in the husk, simply cover each ear in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil. It should keep until the next season. Do NOT unwrap until it is completely thawed.
Following is from the University of Missouri-Columbia:
This is not a good method for freezing corn as it results in off-flavors and nutrient loss because enzymes are not destroyed by blanching. It may also be dangerous! Microorganisms find a perfect environment for growth between the kernels and husk of corn that has been frozen and thawed in the husk and left at room temperature.
My suggestion would be to give it
a try with one (1) ear of corn and see what happens. I would
appreciate learning about your trials doing this.
