It's harvest time!
Yes it's that time of year again. Our garden was overflowing and our friends generosity was too! I received a message from a friend asking if we wanted some fresh sweet corn for free! You know we couldn't refuse that! I was surprised when 52 ears of corn arrived on my door step, but welcomed everyone of them. We set aside a few for dinner that night, but the rest had to go somewhere. And the best place for it was in my freezer. Veggies are very easy to prepare and freeze to enjoy all year long. First take your corn and remove the husk. Thanks to Mr. Bacon and some all too anxious to help Bacon kids this job was a breeze.
Then you need to clear some space. Which requires me to move the fresh made danish puff that was cooling. Yes it looks yummy right? I promise I'll post the recipe soon, it was handed down from Grandma Bacon.
Piles of delicious corn! It was amazing. I think we at 2 or 3 cobs of corn right as it was cut off. Even Little Miss Bacon my picky eater was sneaking some every time I turned my back! It was nice to see her want to eat a vegetable on her own! I placed a good meal size portion of the cut corn into our food saver bags and placed them in the freezer unsealed over night. By doing this it froze up the liquid still in the corn. The next morning I sealed the bags and tossed them back into the freezer. I can't wait to pull a bag out in the middle of winter and enjoy fresh sweet corn!
