How to Freeze Corn

How to Freeze Corn

Is it possible to have fresh corn year-round? Absolutely!  Fresh corn can be stored in its many forms, uncooked, cooked, popped, unpopped, and still in the husk.  Of course, each of these methods has a different shelf life, anywhere from two days to several years.  Read on to learn about how to freeze corn so you can use fresh corn in your favorite recipes like Devilish Chicken and Corn on the Cob no matter what time of year it is!

How to Store Corn

Depending on the state of the corn (cooked, uncooked, on the cob, or off the cob), there are many different ways to store corn.


  • Dried, whole corn kernels, if stored properly, can be stored for several years.  To store uncooked, dried corn kernels, store them in an airtight container in a dry, cool place.
  • Uncooked whole ears of corn should be stored with the husks still on, but remember, corn should be eaten within one or two days from when it was picked.  Wrap the husks tightly in plastic wrap and store in your refrigerator’s crisper.
  • For a fresh, sweet corn shortcut, cook your corn and store it in the freezer!  Boil the whole ear and when it’s cooked through, transfer the corn to a dish with icy water.  This will blanch the corn and get rid of any bacteria that may have survived through the cooking process.  Rinse the corn well and store in an airtight freezer bag.  Freezing corn on the cob will keep it fresh up to a year.
  • Alternatively, you can remove the cooked kernels from the cob and store in your freezer.  Put the corn kernels in a freezer-safe plastic baggie and gently roll the bag up from the bottom to push the extra air out.  Freezing corn kernels will keep them fresh for 2-3 months.
