  • Are you wanting to eat it withing the next week? Then you can keep it in the fridge. But if you want to freeze any to save you have to blanch it. This means you boil it for 5 minutes, or may want to look it up on the internet to make sure. But boil it long enough to basically kill any germs/bacteria. Then you immerse it in cold water. Then you cut it off the cob and put in storage baggies or containers to freeze it.

  • To have perfectly cooked corn on the cob what I do is start with cold water, put the corn in and turn the heat on. As soon as the water starts to boil the corn will be perfectly cooked.

  • according to the website I found.. you can leave it on your counter, its good for only a few days to a week tops, and you can boil for 5-7 minutes if the water is already boiling when you put the corn in, or 2-4 min. if you start off with cold water. it will float when its done
