Farmer's Market: Putting up summer's harvest
The fresh food tastes so much better. I didn't realize how much flavor food lost by being transported and refrigerated. And, instead of finding dead worms in your corn, you find live ones! How's that for fresh-picked?!
A few weeks ago, I found some of the largest, most perfect ears of corn I've ever seen. the corn went all the way to the tip, and the flavor was excellent. 12 ears produced about 16 heaping cups of corn (average seems to be about 1 cup per ear or a little less) , which is now stored in my freezer. We've used a little of the stored corn, just to try it out, and it beats canned hands-down. It tasted as though I'd just bought and cooked the corn that day. I'll be loving that in the middle of the winter!
