We are abundantly blessed!
And it was some of the very best sweet corn I've ever tasted!
A huge thank you to the McClerren family.
My crew was invited to help pick...at 5:30 in the morning. They were sent home with buckets of corn.
We do things as a family. Many hands make light work--especially when there's many mouths to feed. LoL.
My husband knows the value of tools and has made sure I have helpful tools for my kitchen. Like a food slicer--which I might add has been used a LOT this summer.
Another favorite use for the slicer?
It makes fast work for slicing cukes for pickling.
By the time he was done cutting corn off the cobs, there were two buckets of cobs!
And lots and lots of corn.
I grew up using a pressure cooker, so I used one to do a variation of blanching the corn. It was much faster--especially since we used a turkey cooker burner which was outside.
Once all was said and done, we had 17 quarts ready for the freezer.
And that was just from the first round.
We had two days of doing corn.
Can you say yumminess for the coming winter?
Even the newest member of our family, Junior, got into working on the corn. He loves sweet corn just as much as we do. LoL. That's one smart kitten! =)
So tell me, have you had any sweet corn yet this year?
