Pick or buy your ears of corn. The number you need will depend on how many quarts you want to end up with. One large ear equals a little less than 1 cup. (4 cups in 1 quart)
Shuck your corn. This is a great time to cut off the ends as well. Be sure to check for worms-cut them out at this time.
Wash your ears of corn to remove any silks.
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add corn. Start timer when the water has been brought back up to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes.
Lay your corn out to cool. This is a very important step. Be sure your corn has cooled off completely before moving on.
Cut your cooled corn using a knife or corn cutter (shown in picture). Throw away used corn cobs.
Label your freezer bags with the date. Using a measuring cup, fill your bags with the cut corn. Seal tightly and lay flat to freeze.
