Oh, how I love this time of year! The vegetables in the garden are now in abundance, and there’s nothing quite like celebrating the nearness of summer ending while harvesting the fruits of your summer labors!
Today it was time to enjoy the fresh corn!
So we rounded up the troops and spent a beautiful day teaching the kids how to shuck the corn, blanch, cut, and then freeze. They LOVED it!
It was so cute to hear my little nephew yell with excitement, “Hey! I found the corny part!” as he peeled away those layers, one by one.
In just a couple of hours, we had shucked and taken care of 240 ears of corn!
We bagged cobs of corn as well as cut corn. Woohoo! The taste of fresh corn is now ours all winter long!
And speaking of good food, I have a recipe to share with you! Now let me first say, that if someone were to say, “Would you like some creamed corn?”, that it might not be the first thing I would jump at. HOWEVER…do I have a recipe for you! It sounds so good that I can’t wait to try!
My sister tells me it is to die for. Our good friend, Debbie, shared this with us. It sounds unbelievable and so, so yummy. And I might add…do yourself a favor and don’t count the calories on this one. LOL
