You guys know I have to come up with some “corny” titles and this post is perfect as I have been putting some corn up this weekend. We froze some as mini corns on the cob and we also froze some in small portions in the freezer to throw in stews etc…but the bulk of the corn we are in the process of drying as truthfully that is the most efficient way to put up food and it takes up the least amount of space. I am behind on my game this year so we were actually lucky in this area to find some corn that still tastes good because my friend Lisa at “The Way Grandmama Does It” told me they still had some good corn at one of our favorite local produce stands and she was right and they had just marked it down because we caught the tail end. So glad I didn’t miss out on corn this season even though I am eating less corn in general these days its still a special treat and when I eat it I want it to be good!
In addition to putting up some corn and drying tomatoes which my husband did most of the corn because I also threw my back out this weekend…..I could not have gotten through this weekend without him. He also has been bottling our honey and I have been putting the labels on and we are actually going to be selling some honey now too for the first time!
How many of you are putting up food this weekend? I am still hoping to put some peaches up this summer I hope I’m not too late….time is running out for us produce-wise in Coastal North Carolina. Hope you all have had a great weekend!
