A unique method and recipe for freezing sweet corn! I have been freezing corn like this for years. This is a recipe I found in my Grandmother’s recipe box. This is just so good! I have a hard time getting it packed up in the containers for freezing because my family likes to eat it right out of the oven. I hope you will give it a try!
