Fresh Corn

Whether you freeze your corn or you buy your corn, how you season makes it or breaks it.  I'm going to give you my freezing corn recipe, but also tell you how to season it when you cook it for the best corn ever!

Fresh Corn

12 to 14 ears of corn
2 Tbsp. sea salt (per bag)
1 cup water (per bag)
1 tsp. sugar

Boil corn for 5 to 8 minutes.  Remove and immediately place in ice water for 5 minutes.  Pull the corn out of the water and cut it off the cob.  To freeze, add corn in a quart sized freezer bag - 3/4 way full. Add 2 Tbsp. sea salt, 1 tsp. sugar and 1 cup of water to each bag.  Press out the air and seal.  Freeze immediately.

2 Tbsp. real butter
2 tsp. ground pepper
more salt if needed

Now to cook the corn.  Remove from the freezer and cut away the bag.  Place corn in a deep pot and add 2 Tbsp. real butter, and more salt if needed to taste.  Slowly bring to a boil over medium heat, until all of the corn has thawed and is boiling.  Boil for about 8 more minutes and serve.
