  1. Toss your frozen bag of corn kernels on the counter top a few times to loosen the kernels
  2. Arrange the frozen corn on your food dehydrator trays, making sure there's some space for breathing room!
  3. Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
  • Dehydrated corn will be brittle when fully dried.
  • Drying time: between 6-12 hours.
  • Please remember to rotate your trays for even drying.

Dehydrating Fresh Corn

For those of you with fresh corn, simply husk and wash them. Get a pan of water boiling and steam the ears for 4-5 minutes. Get them into cold water as soon as possible to stop the cooking process.

Next, cut the corn off the cob by standing the ear on its end, and slice downwards from the top to cut off the kernels. Make sure you get the whole kernel and not tons of stalk!

Now follow the instructions from Step 2 onward in the frozen corn instructions.

Fresh corn takes around 12-15 hours when fully dehydrated. It will be brittle and very hard.
