Alright, so first off — I’m not a huge canning person.  I don’t know how to do it.  I get why people do it, but I’m a single person living in DC.  It just doesn’t make sense. 

But, I do like corn and was happy to see it’s still offered at the Adams Morgan Farmers Market.

I boiled a few ears until they were cooked.  Then cut the corn off the cob.  Since I only had 5 ears, I didn’t use the angel food cake pan trick. 

The trick is to put the ear of corn in the angel food cake pan and then cut down.  It catches all the kernels.

My mom decided to email me her “trick” to freezing corn.  If you do cook a lot of it, the trick is to put the kernels (off the cob) and add 1 TBSP of milk and 1 tsp of sugar.  Mix it together and then freeze.

I have never done it because to be honest, I don’t have that much corn and it doesn’t last that long in my house anyway.

But thought I’d pass along the trick.
