The first thing we did was freeze some corn that a friend gave us from her garden. It was great because I was able to have my daughter help me out a lot of this one. She helped shuck the corn and handed me ears to put in the water.
After shucking the corn I actually just cooked it for 5 minutes in boiling water and then pulled them out and let them cool.
After they cooled enough so I could touch the cob I cut the kernels off and put it in a bag. My wonderful daughter labeled the bags for me.
With 8 ears of corn we were able to fill two quart size bags for the freezer. It was a great little activity to break up the day for us and to have corn to enjoy later.
