The first corn is always bicoloured, the next round will be the yellow stuff, and the last round before the frost will be the white (silver queen) corn. I am partial to the bicoloured, so I'd be happy to not bring you any of that. More for me! More for me!

What do a carving knife and an angel food cake pan have in common? They are handy tools when preparing 7 dozen ears of corn for the freezer. I've never liked freezing it on the cob, so I cut the kernels off after blanching and chilling. Standing the cob up on the angel food pan and using the electric carving knife makes it possible to do 7 dozen ears in just over an hour. The pan catches the kernels, so they don't fly all over the counter. I transfer the kernels to a bowl (easier to scoop them out and pop into a zippie). I "suck" excess air out with a straw. I have two bag sealers, but I don't like them...go figure.

I've heard that really works too!

It does really work. I actually picked up a 2nd electric carving knife and spare angel food pan so the DH can use the same tools when he's around to do corn. I put the angel food pan on a plastic tray so the counter doesn't get all wet.

I started doing this a couple years ago and it has made putting up corn so much easier! I did have to invest in another angel food cake pan as the "neck" of mine got pretty scratched up and cake started to stick.

Ad a separate note, I didn't blanch our corn this year. We tried a different method using ice with delicious results!

Care to share the method--there's a lot more corn in the corn patch.
