CWS, we like the bi-color and Silver Queen best, too, but it's not ready yet. We still can't even buy any local corn....not for a few more weeks. We bought ours in the grocery store. Who knows where it came from.

Kayelle, we shuck the corn and cook it on the grill. We like when it gets burn marks on it. We never eat it right of the ear because of teeth, or in my husband's case, the lack thereof. I eat it just as it is with no salt or butter. I like to taste the corn. DH has started mixing his with ranch dressing. I tried it and it was pretty good, but I still prefer mine naked.

As it turned out, we only have 1 leftover ear so someone will eat that today. Normally, DH will not eat anything that is leftover and frozen, that's why I had the original question. I think it would be great to use for corn and black bean salsa. It calls for a can of corn, but I think the leftover grilled corn would be wonderful!

I don't shuck my corn until it's hot and ready to be eaten. I either soak the corn in water, and grill it until it's hot, or put 3 pieces in the microwave, and heat for 4 minutes. The corn is piping hot, with crispy kernals, and full, naked corn flavor. We just have a platter on the table for putting the empty husks on. Sometimes I save the husks for making tamales, after they've dried of course.

Do you leave the silk on or take it off before cooking? I microwaved some corn on the cob and left it all on, as per instructions. Getting the burning hot silk off was a PITA.

So go cook that corn and enjoy the leftovers another day.
I have never seen frozen cooked corn at the supermarket.

It is blanched before frozen.

Yeah, but not cooked.

Another reason for my question is that I had heard that you can blanch the corn, then cut it off and freeze it, but I was not sure that that could be done with it completely cooked.

The reason we husk it before we grill it is because we like the black grill marks on the actual corn kernels. I have never seen this done when I've been at a cook out or barbque, it's just something DH started doing.

I only eat the corn we grow--don't know about corn you buy in the store. I start the pot before I walk out to the corn field. The best corn is that you pick and shuck on the way back to the farm house--and the water is ready when you walk in the door.

You obviously are buying your corn, not growing it.

I put cubed potatoes in my chicken soup. I used to freeze quarts for later use. But the potatoes got a nasty texture. So I don't freeze it any more.
