Step by step preparation of frozen corn kernels, recipe with photo:
1. Peel the corn cob and remove the fibrous leaves. It is better to start doing this from the bottom of the cob, where its tassel is located.
2. Wash the ears under running water.
3. If the cooking pot is small, break the corn into suitable sized pieces.
4. Place the corn in the cooking pot.
5. Fill it with water to cover the ears, add salt and place the pot on the stove.
6. After boiling, cook it over low heat for half an hour, covered. Young sweet corn varieties cook quickly. If you make the harvest from old corn, then it will take longer to cook.
7. Remove the corn from the boiling water and leave to cool.
8. Carefully husk the kernels, pressing the knife to the cob as much as possible and cutting them off.
9. Place the beans in a bag or freezer container and place them in the freezer. Pan the bag every hour so that the grains do not stick together when freezing. Finished frozen corn kernels can be stored in the freezer throughout the winter.
