Corn, Corn & More Corn

Last Thursday night we went up to see my dad and ended up coming home with 35 dozen ears of corn!!! The corn filled up the back of our truck and Jaiden was excited to have her picture taken with all of this corn.

I ended up only keeping 6 dozen for myself. I went to Bed Bath, & Beyond and got the neatest, time saving tool. It takes corn off the cob so simple and easy! It was only $2.99 and well worth it! My grandmother didn't like it so she did it the old fashioned way, with a knife, and I think it took her twice as long.

I spent my whole day Saturday putting up corn. I really put my food sealer to the test! I ended up keeping 2 dozen on the cob, 2 dozen off the cob for fried corn, and I think we ate about 2 dozen. I even saved the cobs to make jelly. This was the best corn I have ever ate! I hope all of this hard work pays off!
