Expert Tips

  • To freeze fresh corn, remove kernels from the cob and spread out evenly onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for a couple of hours, then transfer to a freezer bag. Freezing on the cookie sheet first prevents the corn from sticking together.

More About This Recipe

  • I loved corn as a child and I love it even more as an adult! I used to live in a mostly Mexican neighborhood in California and I still remember that in the late afternoons you would hear an old Mexican man wearing a cowboy hat yelling, "Elote!… Elote!", while pushing a cart filled with steamed corn and all the favorite toppings.
