Us too, except we picked ours at a "you pick" farm and froze it. Enjoy that corn.:)

That's a big messy job well done! I didn't freeze any corn this year. We still have some in the freezer!

Mr H.
I hate to tell you how greedy we have been this year for corn :o( This is our THIRD bushel ..We bought one Silver King and One that we forgot the name but they both were small kernels and delicious..we had eaten a bushel so far and knew it wouldn't be enough for winter so we went and this looked good, but the kernels were to large for our taste so I decided to put it into jars for creamed corn which we like very much. :o)

We had a good system going, Cecil shucked it outside under the tree for shade and the bugs didn't bother him, I cut it off the cob inside using a baking pan with the hole in the center and the corn fell around it (and some went onto the floor :o( but all together it was a good system , the only thing is the long time in the pressure cooker 1 1/2 hours, but now it's done :o) and I feel good looking at it.

Mrs. Pickles, I didn't even try to plant corn this year on my "Almost an Acre" farm, thank goodness the bigger farmers did :o)

Daisy, I have to keep busy or go crazy in this world of ours :o)..the corn is a good treat, this is our third bushel this year ..we have never eaten so much of it..

sometimes I feel like the kitchen is rocking me :o)...there is always something besides a meal that needs cooking.

Oh how I love canned creamed corn. I'm just beginning to water bath can, I suppose pressure canning will come later, but this looks so yummy and inspiring. Thanks for sharing!!

1st man,
remember you have to pressure can the corn
if you want to save it in jars..if you want to freeze that's a different way (blanch, cool, freeze:o)..don't get mixed up.
