by Lucy Hudnall

Shucking the silk off of Fresh Corn can be Tedious Work..This is what we do for corn eaten on the cob.


  • Fresh Corn
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your corn still in the husk.

    Step 2

    And your plastic wrap.

    Step 3

    Inspect for Earworms. They eat holes in the corn. You can see he has just started on this ear.

    Step 4

    After inspected, lay ear down on the wrap. Now I wrap end over end. Please feel free to do this your way. This is just my preference.

    Step 5

    Grab from under the wrap to flip over to other side.

    Step 6

    Like so.

    Step 7

    Ensure coverage is complete. Flatten sides.

    Step 8

    Trim the end to flap back over the bottom.

    Step 9

    Stretch end over open end.

    Step 10

    Then stretch the sides up and around.

    Step 11

    Like so.

    Step 12

    Then fold up the other side, stretching and pressing air out as you go.

    Step 13

    Now we have tightly wrapped corn that will Freeze well.

    Step 14

    Start yourself a pile until done.

    Step 15

    When you get them all wrapped, gather together. If your like me, my big freezer is in the garage. So I pack them in a plastic bag.

    Step 16

    I have these handy stackable bins that I keep the corn in. So when I need some corn, I can just go grab how many I need.

    Step 17

    To cook- lay corn out to thaw. Place in microwave for 3-4 min. Pull out with oven mitts. Cut off end with no tassel. With oven mitts on, squeeze the cob out. It will slide out with no silk. Enjoy!
