I spent the morning/afternoon with my grandma, mom, and girls making freezer corn! Four generations!
We had 48 ears of corn to shuck and Cailynn enjoyed helping. Well, she enjoyed taking the “skin” off but didn’t want to touch the “strings.”
Once the corn was shucked, we cut the corn off of the cob and placed it into a large, heavy sauce pan.
We added water, salt, sugar, and butter and cooked it!
That’s my grandma!
We used my grandma’s food saver to seal them in bags!
And that’s my mom!
And this is the result of our work in the kitchen yesterday!
Here’s the recipe in case you are interested:
*8 cups raw corn
*1 cup water
*1 Tbsp salt
*1 Tbsp sugar
*1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine
Use large, heavy sauce pan and cook on high until it boils. Once it boils, cook for about 3 minutes. Make sure you are stirring the entire time. Cool quickly.
It is SO tasty! I couldn’t stop snitching (although I wasn’t the only one!). We have a few bags of frozen (from the store) corn in our freezer and I told my grandma we would have to finish those before we start on the corn we made because it would probably go to waste – not nearly as good! We got a lot made but we are hoping to make one more round before the summer is over!
