It is sweet corn time again in Kansas. My father-in-law has the best garden. Every year we all get together and freeze sweet corn and then he lets us take some home. It is so great to have sweet corn in your freezer in the middle of the winter. Yum.
My in-laws are the hardest working people I know. They had gotten up really early to start and by the time the boys and I arrived they had already picked and husked all the corn.
Levi and I got to work. He stayed outside and helped my sisters-in-law wash the corn. I went inside and helped my mother-in-law cut the corn off the cob. (I think I got the easy job because it was HOT outside….like I said, they are the hard workers!)
Judging by how wet Levi was when they were done, I’m not exactly sure how helpful he was.
But whatever he was doing, he was definitely having fun.
I forgot to take a picture of the piles of corn. There were wheelbarrows full.
After we cut all the corn off the cob we got it ready for freezing. Go here if you want the recipe. The boys and I went home for nap time before all the corn had cooled. I think in the end we ended up with 109 quart bags of sweet corn. I would say my father-in-law had a successful harvest. 🙂 Ours on the other hand, wasn’t the best. Somehow it always seems to work out that way.
A certain little boy now has a new fave…sweet corn!
He will chew on the cob forever. It makes dinner much more relaxing for all of us.
But watch out if you try to take it away from him. He is very protective.
He doesn’t even give up when he is tired. He just lays his head right on cob and keeps chewing.
Sweet corn really is that good! 🙂
