Store Well, Waste Less
- Fresh corn on the cob may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days but flavor is best when eaten right away. Refrigerate corn in its husk.
- Corn can be frozen on the cob or as cut corn. Blanching in boiling water is recommended but it is safe to freeze without blanching. Newer super sweet varieties may be frozen without blanching and stored for up to 8 months without flavor loss.
- Look for “Best if used by” or “Best by” date on label of canned or frozen corn. Choose the longest storage time. Store cans in a cool, dry location. Keep frozen corn at 0 degrees F for 8 to 12 months.
