Sweet Corn!

Sweet corn – fresh from the garden!

This is one of my favorite days of the summer. We’ve been watching the patch carefully for weeks – and today was the day!

The kids and I picked 2 buckets of corn just before supper.

Then we had a feast.

It was a corn eating frenzy with butter dripping down our chins and elbows.

There was no limit on how many ears we could eat and the pile of empty cobs in the middle of the table kept growing.

When we had all eaten our fill…

Knife…we started the messy task of cutting the corn from the cobs and filing bags for the freezer.

It brought back some fun memories of cutting corn with my siblings when I was little. The jokes and laughter would fly as fast as the corn kernels!

The bags of corn are now in the freezer, the kitchen is cleaned and the corn juice is wiped off the floors and walls.

I just hope that long after the corn is eaten, my kids will smile at the memory we made tonight!

  1. Do you cook the corn before freezing? I’ve always wanted to try to freeze some – but I could never decide how to do it and was too lazy to look online. We love cooking corn on the cob on the grill. It’s hubby’s favorite summer food.

    1. Hey Becki! We always boil our corn first, cool it quickly in cold water and then cut it off the cob. We fill quart size plastic freezer bags and freeze. Easy – but messy!
