A customer request....

We had a few people over the weekend asking about how best to freeze corn to enjoy over the winter.  Here's a couple of our favourite recipes.  Yes, believe it or not, we don't eat enough corn during July, August and September!

One option is to freeze Dorisdale corn using the 5 Steps for Blanching Vegetables.  Check out this easy to follow recipe card from the Peterborough County-City Health Unit or ask for your copy next time you pick up corn.  FYI- there's one recipe card for vegetables and another for fruit.

Another favourite is my Aunt Sara's Freezer Corn recipe.  It was given to her by a family who grew sweet corn in the Renfrew area.

Aunt Sara's Easy Freezer Corn

10 cups corn kernels
2 tsp salt (or less)
6 tsp sugar
3 cups water

With an electric knife, cut kernels from cobs of corn (remove the husk and silk first!!).  Hold at the top of the cob and watch your fingers!!

Measure raw corn kernels into large pot.  Add sugar, salt and water.  Bring to boil over high heat.  Boil for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool.  Portion into freezer bags (corn and liquid) and freeze.
