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