Fresh corn is one of the favorite ingredients for many people because of its special sweet and fragrant taste. Fresh young corn is often used to make play dishes such as baking, boiling, roasting or cooking soup, stir-fry, soup, drop in hot pot… are all very attractive.
Corn bought fresh, if not eaten, must be preserved to keep its freshness. If you do not know how to preserve, corn will be pale, dehydrated, and no longer delicious. So how to preserve corn effectively, please refer to the following ways:
First, cut off the bearded end of the corn with scissors, both to save space in the refrigerator and to detect if the corn is deep. After cutting, peel the corn, leaving only 3 skins to make the corn sweeter and more fragrant.
Then use cling film to cover each corn. Doing this will retain moisture in the corn stalks and prevent refrigerator odors. Then put these corns in the freezer to preserve, when eaten, they can be steamed or cooked directly. With this preservation method, the corn is still fresh as if it was just bought.
Preliminary processing of fresh corn purchased in the above way, leaving 30% of corn leaves. Then put the corn in the pot, pour water into it and soak for about 30 minutes, the soaked corn will absorb a lot of water, when boiled, the corn will cook faster and the seeds will be fuller.
Then bring the corn and pot to a boil, add a little salt and baking soda, boil the corn water on high heat, boil for about 20 minutes, remove the corn to drain. Then put the corn in a fresh storage bag. Squeeze out all the air in the bag, seal the bag tightly, and put it in the refrigerator.
Whenever you need to bring corn to cook, corn is still very delicious.
Note: If you only store corn kernels, you should separate all corn kernels and put them in a storage bag or put in a storage box, cover, and freeze. When you need to eat, let it defrost naturally and then cook.
