As summer is coming to a close so are our crops in our garden. Which means its canning time. First up was cucumbers (which we canned into a huge pile of pickles). Next veggie up on the chopping block (literally)… Corn!
We were so lucky to have a wonderful little helper…
First we cleaned the corn, then cooked up it up for 3 minutes
Yes, Little Rascal that IS a bunch of corn! My mouth is agape with surprise too.
Then after its been cooked and then bathed in a cold bath (to stop the cooking process), Grandma cut it off the cob. Good trick of the trade is place that corn cob on an upside down small bowl inside a larger bowl (as seen above). Works like a charm.
Last step is to put them in a freezer sealed bag. We bunched ours in 5 cup increments. This way everything is even steven. I believe we bagged about 50 pounds.
Honestly I can’t believe that my mother and father in law are smiling because this whole canning process is a lot of work! Thank goodness they are supremely good sports and willing to help us with our insane country adventure.
