Catch it while you can, we get such a small window to eat fresh corn on the cob! It’s so easy to put up too, it takes literally fifteen minutes. Here’s what you do:

Pick up 12 ears, say from Paul of Gregory Farm.

Boil water in soup pot or blancher.

Drop corn in for 3 minutes.

Clean sink, fill with cold water and ice cubes. Drop corn in the sink – this shocks it and stops it cooking further, and also makes it cool enough to handle.

Stand the corn cob up on a cutting board and slice down the sides to take the niblets off the cob. Put the cob in yard waste.

Put the niblets in quart size bags, label, and freeze.

If you’re thrifty you can save the corn water to make corn and potato chowder.
