My neighbor gave me some fresh sweet corn. This year's corn is the sweetest I've ever tasted. I plan to have a microwaved ear with my lunch, maybe keep another couple ears in my refrigerator, and freeze the rest. It's so easy. I've done it in the past. Just cut off both ends, take off the tough outer husk, put it in a bag and freeze it. I plan to cook up the field peas and freeze them in pint bags.

I gotta try this (corn).
Do you thaw the ear before microwaving, and How does the texture turn out? Still crisp?

I've thawed mine, but I see no reason to, except the timing. I know it takes two minutes per ear when its thawed. I don't know how long it would take frozen.

We shelled them by hand when I was growing up. Later someone in my area bought a pea sheller. These were given to me in the bag. I stuck the whole bag in my freezer. I plan to make a stock using ham shanks, then add the peas. I'll boil them uncovered to thicken the potlikker. I'll save out a couple of meals to have with my frozen bell peppers, and scratch cornbread, then rye freeze them.

I fixed some a few days ago that had been frozen in the shuck since last august. I wasn't sure how it would be due to time in the freezer. After thawing I shucked it and placed it on a lodge hibachi charcoal grill while our steaks cooked. I thought it was the best I had ever eaten. Ready to try it again soon. The corn in the panhandle is only about knee high. So it has a ways to go.

We shelled them by hand too. Now my cousin and I have electric shellers. Saves a lot of time.

Bill, I could swear I read a thread where you said black-eyed peas taste like dirt. I was just sure an ole' country boy like you couldn't really feel that way.

I was raised on 'em..have shelled many a bushel, and especially enjoy them ladled over corn bread, onion and tomatoes.
My kids used to moan, "Where's the meat?" Mama and I would just laugh and enjoy.

Wasn't me. I have a load of pictures of blackeyed peas in photobucket. I like them with my chow chow.

Picked about a 100 ears Saturday... Cut the ends off and leave the shucks on, put in zip-lock bags then freeze. When we are ready for some we put it in the microwave for 5-6 minutes in a covered dish and let it sit for a few minutes then shuck it. No more boiling water and fast!!
