❁ Refrigerate fresh corn in the husk when possible. Although corn is best when eaten soon after picking, newer varieties keep their flavor and texture for up to a week or longer.
❁ Freeze corn on the cob or as cut kernels. Blanching in boiling water is recommended before freezing for better flavor, but it is safe to freeze without blanching. Use frozen corn within 8 to 12 months.
❁ The “BEST if used by” date on the label of canned or frozen corn is a guide to using it while at its best quality. If stored well, it is still safe to eat after this date.
