80 ears of corn filled 5 Large trays*


  1. Husk corn, then brush corn softly to remove silk
  2. Blanch the sweet corn: Boil water, Dunk corn in boiling water for 5-6 minutes, then dunk in an ice bath for several minutes
  3. After corn is cooled down, use a serrated knife to cut corn off of the cobb
  4. Line tray with parchment or silicone
  5. Fill trays with sweet corn (8 cups per Large tray)
  6. Pre-Freeze
  7. Freeze Dry

The Popcorn seasoning corn was great as a snack without rehydrating.

Cycle Time: 

My cycle time in a large freeze drying using a premier pump was 52 hours 22 minutes without pre-freezing.


About 1 cup of corn and shy of 1⁄2 cup water. Let sit, and then heat in the microwave. You can also rehydrate using about 1⁄4 cup of butter and 1⁄4 cup of water.

 *Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray
Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.
