I wait till mid July or later for the local sweet corn. To bad it's only available for two-ish months a year. I just don't like the store bought grown somewhere else sweet corn.
Sweet corn is best within 5-7 days at the latest after picked or sooner.
Elmer's school glue may be safe.:vs_laugh:I don't disagree that locally grown fresh corn is great, but that doesn't mean we should have deprived all at my grandson's BD party just because the available corn wasn't the best. I didn't see anyone hesitating to munch it down, myself definitely included.
We will do a corn feed again and again when local products flood in. In the mean time I'll practice gluing kernels onto hotdogs to see how that tastes, it looks good.
Yes it does, very fast. The first few days after picked(right away is best)it loses sweetness.Does it lose its sweetness? Last year, I bought some, forgot about it & when I cooked it, it had no sweetness. I don't know if it was field corn?
Unable to locate the Bird's Eye info. now but it seems as if his strategy was get it to the freezer a quick as possible and his freezers were mighty cold. There's other phrases for just how cold but not at this time.:wink2:Does it lose its sweetness? Last year, I bought some, forgot about it & when I cooked it, it had no sweetness.

My wife and I do this every year when corn gets to be the cheapest, usually about 25¢ an ear. As a side note, when I was a kid back in the 50s my father and uncle grew a lot of corn. I used to take it around the neighborhood in my red wagon and sell it for 25¢ a dozen. Inflation!When I lived in west central Indiana I bought sweet corn by the gunny sack picked that morning. Kids shucked it and I blanched it, then in cold water, cut corn off the cob and sealed in bags. Had a little machine to seal bags. Finished by lunch. Did that several days and had delicious corn that winter.
Maybe the above corn dog was put together by patience and toothpicks ?
I still have my old corn holders.

I made a similar casserole last night. Cheesy Zucchini and Hominy Casserole. No pics, it wasn't pretty but was tasty. Zucchini, onion, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, hominy, seasoning. This was to go with meatloaf and carrots in Bourbon Sauce. By the time I got the casserole put together I didn't have the energy to peel and slice 2 pounds of carrots. I'll get a couple pkg. of baby carrots today and make it.Try this corn casserole. It’s creamy and delicious.
note...you can substitute chopped a jalapeño peppers in place of
the canned green chili peppers.
