All of the ears were fat and full; very few culls.
They are so sweet we were nibbling on them raw.
The gals shucking the corn, I cut off the horn worms.
Now we have to process them.
We froze 34 ears as corn on the cob following the Ball Blue Book instructions, we took 16 ears and made pickled corn and the rest we cut off the cob and canned using the pressure canner.
It can get tedious and we had to do several batches.
Presto 16 quart pressure canner worked like a champ....but we could have used the 23 quart.
While we were at it, we harvested some tomatoes, added onion, garlic and basil from our garden and popped them into the oven to roast.
Pureed them when they were roasted.
And we had the tastiest roasted tomato soup for dinner.
The pickled corn is in the pint jars and its very good...the whole house still smells like corn.
And while we were out the other day we found this wing backed chair for $68.00' its not an antique but its a nice chair and almost brand new without a mark on it.
We also found this swivel rocker for $15.00; again not an antique but not a mark on it and it just needs cleaning.
At a yard sale on the way home we bought some things for Judy and found these chairs for $1.35 each (we got 4)...not our style but they will due for temp use and the price was right.
We also found this old play bill in the frame for a couple bucks
We both had a long hard day watching the ladies do the canning.
