To Keep Corn Fresh

Remove husk, then store in a plastic bag, in the fridge, in the vegetable tray.
 

Cooking Instructions

To Boil:

  • Bring pot of water to a rolling boil. Drop corn into the water, cooking for ONLY 4-5 minutes (or until you can smell it). DO NOT over cook; the corn will lose its flavour.

To Barbeque: 

  • Cook on high and in the husk for 8-10 minutes (5 minutes on each side). Keep the barbecue lid down. There is no need to soak the corn if it is fresh.

To Microwave (cooking 1 cob):

  • 1 cob - Cook for 3 minutes on high with or without husk, in plastic wrap or milk bag.
  • 3 cobs - Form a triangle with cobs. Cook for 3 minutes on high as per 1 cob cooking instruction above.


Freezing & Serving

To Freeze: Blanche (slightly cook) corn on the cob in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Remove from water (water does not need to return to boil) and cool quickly by submerging corn into ice water. Cut corn niblets off cob, bag, and freeze.

To Serve: Remove corn from bag, place frozen corn in pot with approximately 1 inch of boiling water. Heat until thawed and corn is warmed through.

DO NOT CONTINUE TO COOK.
