Yes, you can. It's just blanch the corn cobs before, that's a very simple process. In a large boiling pan, boil a good quantity of water. Add not too much sweet corn cobs already cleaned and let to boil for 4-6 minutes, be dependent on the size and maturation of grain.
With a metal sieve, remove the cobs from boiling water and dip in cold water immediately. Drain water and dry sweet corn with a paper towel. Wrap, label and freeze them.
To cook, remove from the freezer and place in a pan with unsalted boiling water. Boil for 3-5 minutes more than the recommended time.
It is possible also blanch just the grains and freeze them. The maize doesn't lose the flavor and it's yummier than canned sweet corn.

Durability: 1 year.


  1. Didn't know that it was yummier than canned corn! I love corn any way :) Great tip for when corn is in season!

  2. Alas, I don't have a freezer. I remember my mother "putting up" food like this when we were young. So fresh and delicious tasting!

  3. Thanks for the advice about the corn! It is so tasty right now that I have a serious urge to stock up on it. Now I can!

  4. Thanks for the post! It's good to know!!!

  5. You can, indeed.. but where you live, it must be available fresh, nearly always!

  6. I don't know why, but I ALWAYS forget that I can freeze corn. I better run to the farmers stand and buy some to freeze so I don't forget this year. Thanks for the reminder!
