Joseph came home with sweet corn, compliments of the co-op. So the choices are: eat fresh corn until you're sick or freeze it and enjoy golden yumminess all winter long. We opted to do the work now and enjoy the rewards later.
|This bag was full when we started.|
|Getting down to business.|
|Clare and I cut the corn off the cob. See the big, blue bowl?|
That bowl caused all sorts of problems. Marianna insisted there was popcorn in it,
because usually that's what it's used for.
|So after saying "no" at least ten times, I gave in and everybody had a morning |
snack of (you guessed it) popcorn.
|Andrew went on break before he even worked up a sweat.|
|OK, so I'm sure this is not considered healthy by today's standards.|
|This batch was finished in time for lunch and the rest made it|
to the freezer.
Then, a few days later, we started the whole process over again. Joe brought home TWO bags and I roped the big guys into helping me, as my first batch of helpers went on a day trip with Dan and Linda.
