We picked up 12 ears of corn from a roadside stand on our Saturday trip to collect our apples from Queener Farm. It’s a beautiful drive down to Scio through Silverton, Stayton and Sublimity – rolling hills, tidy fields and beautiful old barns.
This morning I set about to shuck the corn and cut off the kernels (into a large wooden bowl which helps contain the kernels). To each preheated pint jar, I added 1/2 t salt corn kernels to about 3/4″ from the top and then added boiling water to top them off. Then I popped on the lids and rings and processed them for 55 minutes. I have 6 pints in the canner now with more ready to go when those come out.
I also scraped the ‘milk’ off the cobs to make a pint or so of cream corn.
All of this for $3.00.
