One of the best things about summer is the fresh produce. The fresh melons, berries, tomatoes, and corn on the cob are a special treat. We love corn on the cob in my family. This was my daughter’s first summer eating it and I would venture to say it is in her top three favorite foods. Who could blame her? It is so much better than the canned or frozen versions. When you live in rural areas and have farmer friends, you are often given corn straight out of the field. You just can’t beat it. I hope to one day have a garden large enough to grow corn for my family. In the meantime, I prep corn in the peak of its season so that we can enjoy it all year round. Can you imagine that?! You can eat corn on the cob with your Christmas or New Years dinner. No joke! It is so simple and I’m going to tell you how to do it.
Literally, all you need is however much corn on the cob you want throughout the off season, a feed sack like the one shown below, and a freezer to store it in. Who knew it could be so easy!!? This year I chose to prepare 12 ears of corn for my family of three.
The feed sack below is what I used. Ask your farmer friends or those who have large animals if they have any empty ones laying around. Most do. If you don’t have any farmer friends or they just don’t have a spare, you could try your local co-op. This feed sack is important because the multiple paper layers protects the corn from moisture and helps insulate it.
I bet you can guess what happens next! Put the corn in the feed sack. DO NOT husk it first. I repeat DO NOT husk it first. The husk also acts as an insulator for the corn.
This is so simply you guys, roll the sack up tight. If you choose, you could use a large rubber band to secure the sack. Place the sack of corn in your freezer.
And there you go, you are ready for corn on the cob when there is 12 inches of snow on the ground!
