Preserving Sweet Corn

It’s sweetcorn season. 

University of Illinois Extension Nutrition and Wellness Educator Lisa Peterson says there are a few ways you can preserve that sweet corn to enjoy when the weather turns cold.

Peterson says freezing is popular to preserve corn on the cob or separated, but you have to do it right with a process called blanching. 

Make sure you seal the freezer-safe bag airtight when you freeze your sweet corn. 

Once blanched and frozen, that corn is good to eat months after harvest. You may also can sweet corn if you do it properly with pressure canning.
