7 Steps to Freezing Your Jersey Corn for the Winter

Summer is winding down, and that means it’s time to stock up on that Jersey-fresh produce. Specifically, that delicious corn. Our friends at Johnson’s Corner Farm shared their seven easy steps to freezing your corn for the winter.


  1. Husk the corn and clean it of all corn silk.
  2. Place ears of corn kernels in boiling water.
  3. Boil for one minute.
  4. Immediately plunge corn into ice water, allow to cool for several minutes.
  5. Drain corn in colander and place on lined baking sheet (wax or parchment paper) in a single layer.
  6. Place in freezer for one hour for corn kernels and three hours for corn on the cob.
  7. Put into freezer bags, place back in freezer to enjoy at a later date.


The frozen corn will keep for several months. To reheat, place in microwave-safe dish and heat for two to three minutes.
