12 Ears Fresh Sweet Corn
I make this in far larger batches to freeze for use over the year, typically 48 ears at a time. By using tongs to remove corn instead of pouring off the water I can add more corn to the already boiling water and speed up the process.
A creamer is not the same as a cutter, a long flat stick with a blade set into the length to cut and shred the kernals works best.
When done, remove corn ears with tongs to the ice water to cool enough to handle. Using a large bowl and a corn creamer, cream one ear at a time making several paces on each side to extract all the "juice" from each ear. (older corn or under cooked will have less juice) Add a bit of salt to taste.
Corn is now ready to each or store, zipper bags large enough to hold the typical amount of servings stack neatly and make good use of freezer space.
If desired when preparing for a meal, add a bit of seasoning, cheese or whatever else makes you smile. We eat it au natural here, we're fortunate to get corn within hours of being picked and you can't beat the taste of fresh picked corn.
