Corn Preservation

Is there an easier way to preserve corn for the winter? After work yesterday I went to the garden and pulled weeds, picked tomatoes and all the corn. Corn that was fit to eat that is; about 1/3 of the ears never developed or only about an inch up the cob and these I left on the stalk for the critters. The rest I pulled and shucked.

Over dinner we talked about how to put back these ears and decided that the shorter cobs we would blanch and freeze; like the bags of corn on the cob you can buy at the store. The rest we would take off the cob and can. Tonite is off the cob and can night. It looks to be a daunting project as tomatoes need to be boiled down during this time as well (new batch of sauce).

Oh, the kraut is finished. Monday Pat came over, we tasted (OH SO GOOD!) and then processed. And now some pictures from the last few days. . .

Glorious kraut

On this note, I bid you adieu.

  1. I've never tried it but wonder if Seal-a-Meal would work and be easier to save?

  2. Thanks for the new reads; I'm always looking for new mysteries to read. Although…would you, please, explain the term "cozy mystery"…I've never heard the meaning and only think I know what it means -smile-.Cute gnomes!
