Fresh vs. Frozen Corn Question

I have a recipe that calls for the corn cut from three fresh ears. Fresh corn isn't in season yet around here so I'd like to substitute frozen. Does anyone know roughly how many cups of frozen corn three ears of fresh corn would equal?

I am just guessing, but I would say one ear is about one cup.

Good question. I'd say there is less than a cup of kernels on an ear. Just a guess, maybe a half to three-quarters of a cup per ear.

I guess it depends on how big the ears are! I was thinking (well, guessing!) about one and a half cups total.

I checked out the site Jennyema referenced and found this:

Corn Equivalents

One medium ear of corn equals about 3/4 cup of corn kernels
Two medium ears of corn equals 1 cup corn kernels.



I guess the second medium ear was smaller than the first medium ear!

Yeah, I know. I sure can be a pain where the sun don't shine.


But I'm loveable!
