I pick up disposable table clothes at garage sales or estate sales whenever I find them for a reasonable price. They're great for all kinds of projects.
Josey loved eating the tassels and the leaves.
And supervised my work.
There were worms on a few ears.
Cut and ready for cooking!
I threw the worms and wormy ends of the ears into a ziplock bag and froze them for feeding to the birds.
I used a recipe from Taste of Home for frozen sweet corn. You can find the recipe HERE
To a large stock pot I added 1 quart hot water, 2/3 c sugar, 1/2 cut butter cubed and 2 tsp salt.
I made two batches. One using two dozen ears of peaches and cream corn, the second using two dozen ears of white corn.
I thought the first batch was a little too buttery, so I used about a third of the butter and only 1/3 c sugar.
You bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then transfer to large shallow containers to cool, stirring occasionally.
Theres another container not shown in this picture. My parents came over while I was cooking it and declared it good!
This ziplock bag holder came in handy!
Instructions say to freeze with some of the liquid. I wasn't certain how much. They also shared to leave some head room in the bag for expansion, so I didn't remove all the air. I hope its as good this fall and winter as it was before I froze it. I thought four dozen was a bit extreme when I started cleaning the ears, but now I'm thinking I need more frozen for this winter! Its that good!
