    Default How to cook frozen corn on the cob?

    I have some frozen corn cobs (uncooked). Last time I microwaved them they turned out quite soggy and watery and not very nice. I put them in a glass container with a lid with some water and zapped for about 3 min.

    Was hoping someone can give me some tips or tricks?

    Tonight's dinner will be oporto roast chicken and corn on the cob!

    Let defrost in the fridge for a bit then I'd steam them on the stovetop?

    Default How to cook frozen corn on the cob?

    Do you mean whole fresh ones? Or frozen packet?

    Either way I'd steam them from frozen. But if they are fresh, they may not be nice that way either. We got given some fresh corn and I was wondering if you could freeze. The page I found said to Blanche them first as straight freezing does something to the enzymes and they go mushy and watery when cooked. I didn't end up doing it as it sounded like too much work for 8 corn, so we just had them every night until gone!

    The best way is on the BBQ though. Bit of butter, wrap in foil and cook. YUM!

    Yep whole fresh ones. They were on special so I bought a few and we didn't get through them all so I froze them.

    I will try steaming them ☺

    I would boil them, it's how I always cook corn cobs, fresh or frozen. Note that you'll need to increase the cooking time because they are raw. I boil fresh, raw corn cobs for at least half and hour, they come out nice and bitey, not soggy and with some lovely firmness. Yum!

    I ended up boiling bc couldn't be bothered finding the steamer. Turned out great! Thanks again

    Will try steaming next time to see if there is a difference.
