I have about a bushel of corn that is on my back porch that I need to freeze for winter. Some say I have to blanch and then use ice water and others say I can freeze husk and all and I won't need to do anything but seal real good and freeze. Well guys seems am looking for an easy way, got any tips? Thanks

My hubby's grandmother does

My hubby's grandmother does it husk and all. However, I blanch it for 3 minutes, place in ice-water, drain and then freeze. Everything I have read says you really need to blanch it for safety reasons.

I have done this many times

Blanching, etc., I believe is a waste of time. I cut the corn from the cob, place in a freezer bag and freeze. This corn always tastes SO great in the winter months.
