Sweet Corn




Stopped by the farmers market on a Thursday before heading home about two weeks ago to pick up some tomatoes. I know we have some growing but I have a craving for a nice juicy one now and picked up some bio colored sweet corn. Ever since we have fixed the mex corn in a few past post we just can't get enough so we thought we would put up a few ears. I doubt they will last as we most likely have them cooked before fall. So I guess we will be putting more up.
If not shucked take leaves off and use kitchen food brush to get all little strings (silk)off. Place in boiling water for 4 to 6 minute then place in ice water for same amount of time. drain and place in plastic bag. Now I know you are saying why didn't you cut it off the cob??? It takes up so much room in the freezer. Well we don't plan for it to be there that long and its not like it was a whole bushel.

Looks good. Hopefully we'll have fresh before long.
