Corn for Freezing: Blanch or Not?
We eat a lot of fresh corn in season (especially now we live 3 minutes from a farm stand), but I've never bothered to freeze any of it for winter use before. I find President's Choice Peaches & Cream frozen kernels to be unusually good for frozen veggies and have made do with them.
But now we have a freezer, and the corn is so cheap and plentiful and good, I thought I'd try putting some up this year.
Do you blanch the ears before cutting off the kernels, or just cut & freeze?
