Default Preserving Shoepeg corn like Firecorn

I have looked at some past threads on making your own corn and curing corn for kokanee. I've watched several videos about it on YouTube. But it seams that everyone's home made recipe still has to be kept cold to keep from spoiling.

What I'm trying to figure out is if there is a way to preserve the shoepeg corn so that it doesn't have to be kept cold. To preserve it in a way that you could keep it in the boat or tackle box like you would with the Fire Corn. Is there a way to make it shelf stable?

You are not going to eat it so botulism is not a problem. So why not "can" in using the steam bath canning method in jars? Or you could use a pressure cooker to can it...no botulism that way.
At less than $2 for a can it is not worth my time to grow the corn, harvest it, blanch and cut off the cob, then can or freeze it. I'd rather spend that time fishing.

Maybe put some corn in the dehydrator and when your ready to fish it, soak it in some water?

Some good ideas. I'll have to tinker with it. I thought about layering the corn in salt for a little while to dry it out and then rehydrate it with the water soluble scent. My thought was that the dry corn might suck up the scent through osmosis and get it into the corn better. I'm thinking I'll try a few different things out this week.

I'm not sure why you would want to preserve it? My corn in gun oil I fish is $3. I toss what's left at the end of the day and start fresh the next trip.

When I open a can I usually cure some of it in scent (usually garlic) and some of it I die, these are stored in small tupperware containers, then the unused portion goes in a baggie and push out as much air out before sealing, then into the freezer. The corn can be defrosted and refrozen until used up.
