Putting Up Corn

Summer is starting to wind down and we picked up a huge amount of fresh sweet corn from Mr. Kerr late this morning.  T & C helped me shuck it on the back porch-perfect weather!  I just followed my standard steps: removed silks, boiled for 7 minutes, shocked in ice bath, sliced kernels from cobs and packed int freezer bags.  We have 8 full quarts for winter.  Now to tackle the zucchini...I wish I knew someone who wanted to trade their upright freezer for a cubic one!

We had a fantastic family getaway in Rockford, just had fun watching soccer and swimming and meeting new (and old) friends.  The hotel stay was so much fun for all of us and much needed.
