View Full Version : Frozen Corn - Raw?
01-16-2008, 06:01 PM
In Alyssa's book she makes several mentions to use frozen corn for her recipes like enchiladas. Makes sense because it seems like everything I make with fresh corn that has to be dehydrated has this weird bitter aftertaste. So, my question is - which frozen corn do you use?? Regular commercial organic corn from the frozen section ( is this really raw & non-blanched??), or raw corn off the cob that you put in the freezer yourself.
I'm sooo tired of wasting corn in my recipes!

I use frozen corn that's been thawed. I assumed it was uncooked, but I could be wrong. It's just so much more easy to use.

I also heard the frozen one is cooked, in any case it's important to consider thateven the freshest, most organic and raw corn is still very unhealthy. Grains are very bad for human health (they're for birds) and corn is the worst of the worst among the grains.
The non organic one is also all genetically modified to create it's own pesticides within itself as it grows (remember, it's still unhealthy when organic and raw).
I still have corn every now and then, but I am trying to find a healthy alternative.

The frozen corn you buy at the store has been blanched. But you can freeze your own.

I also believe that it's flash frozen. I do rely on a small amount of frozen fruit though, especially berries, which spoil so easily when you buy them fresh.
I agree about corn but I would use it in recipes on occasion. I think it's best to limit our consumption of hybridized foods. They contribute to blood sugar issues.

Cascadian Farms is the only company that I have found that do not blanche their veggies. The corn is 100% raw:)
