I agree, I really don't know why I posted that now that I think about it. We have always blanched in the big pot of water and had good luck from it. I hope we make a lot of corn since we have used up all we had in the freezer.At least putting it up on the cob is a lot easier than the cream style. Faye

Blanching corn in pressure cooker

I have a digital pc and I was watching a video of another pc.They had cooked a lot of whole corn in it. It made me wonder if I could blanch a lot of our corn (when it comes in) in the pc. I don't know how long I should cook it. Probably not very long at all. Of course it might be more trouble than just cooking in a big pot of water. Just a thought. Faye

I wouldn't bother with a pressure cooker. By the time it came up to pressure the corn would be overcooked IMHO.

I bring water up to a boil, put in my corn on the cob, and in 5 minutes it's perfectly done!

Ditto, unless I am cooking it on the grill.

Big pot of boiling water for the following times:

Blanching times for corn-on-the-cob:
  • small ears ( 1 inches or less in diameter) 7 minutes,
  • medium ears (1 to 1 inches in diameter) 9 minutes, and
  • large ears (over 1 inches in diameter) 11 minutes.
Make sure corn goes in to a bucket of ice water immediately in order to stop the cooking process.

I believe you are confused with cooking Vs Blanching. As kitchenelf said 5 minutes in boiling water and it's DONE.
I tried Blanching corn on the cob IAW Better Homes and Garden Cookbook. Don't remember for sure but it was something like 8 minute.
What a water logged mess that turned out to be.

Not confused at all. I go by the official Extension sources such as
Freezing Sweet Corn
