    I am pretty sure you just peel, wash, blanch and freeze
    but maybe you better google it.

    Blanch the corn, then immediately remove it from the water. Drain it very well, then when it cools stick it in freezer bags and freeze. When you want to use it from the freezer, get your water boiling then drop the corn in it but it is VERY important that you do NOT thaw the corn before you cook it, as that will ruin it.

    We wash (rinse) well in warm water and then blanch and place in freezer bags. Blanching is very important – this cuts down on freezer burn. You can get all the details on what you can freeze, how, and for how long from the FDA. I attached the link to their interactive page on freezing food. I have found it is best to use the food saver sealer to seal food for freezing.

    I personally enjoy corn frozen off the cob; so cut corn off the cob, put it into a hand held colander, and dip in boiling water for about 30 seconds, immediately remove and dip into ice water for 30 seconds. Put into freezer bags, let cool, then close; lay flat on a cookie sheet until frozen, remove and storeage is easier. You can cook in microwave or on the stove.
