Take advantage of that great sale on corn! Freeze it, husks and all, in a cotton pillowcase. (It doesn’t have to be 100% cotton) The cotton fabric will insulate the corn and keep it from spoiling. Put the corn in the pillowcase and fold the top edge over to enclose the ears. It will stay fresh and delicious for months. This is so much easier than blanching, plunging in ice water and then freezing.
You can prepare it in several ways:
-Microwave with the husks on for 5 minutes. Make sure you cool it for a few minutes before you take the husks off because it will be very hot
-Take the husks off and boil in a large pot for 15 minutes or so.
-You can also grill the corn, in the husks or not.
What a joy it will be to savor summer corn this winter.
