Sweet corn time here in Iowa. We have been getting it from roadside stands for a couple of months. You have to be careful and not buy too early. They charge and arm and a leg for the first couple of weeks. I saw some for $7.00 a dozen and passed on them. The most I have paid has been $5.00 for 13 ears (the ones below and the most delicious) down to $3.50 for a dozen (they weren't too shabby either).
Yesterday, I bought $20.00 worth and ended up with 55 ears of corn. We ate six last night and I set six aside for tonight. The rest I put up.
Here I go!
Token artsy shot.
Most of the worms were at the top of the silks, but this little fella had dug down deep.
Boil them up for a bit.
Quick ice bath to blanch.
Scrape, scrape, scrape. I bought a tool to use, but it was worthless.
Ta-dah! I got nine bags of two cups each and two bags with six ears each. That should last for a month, right?
Now, who's coming to clean up the mess?
