Golden Treasures

My favorite part of late summer/early fall......is not the fact that my kids are heading back to school and that means that they are another year older *sigh*.
No.....it is the fact that sweet corn is available at every farmers market and at street vendors all around town.
 
I consider myself VERY lucky:  I have a family of farmers and gardeners.  They range from having only a single rhubarb plant tucked into their landscape someone, to having a simple garden of tomatoes/peppers/green beans, to full out farmers with hundreds of acres of land that they use to help keep America fed.
 
What does this mean to me?  It means that I am preparing to gorge myself with corn on the cob until I am so sick of it that I cannot imagine to eat another bite!  And after I can't eat anymore I will blanch and freeze the rest so that I can have fresh corn that tastes like it just came off of the cob no matter how much snow is outside on the ground.
 
It is very easy to do this for yourself. If you have a pot big enough to boil corn on the cob, you have the ability to have fresh tasting corn all year.  Preparation:  a pot full of boiling water, and a seperate pot or very large bowl filled with ice water.  Boil the corn on the cob for 8 minutes.  Quickly take it out of the boiling water and put it into the ice water to stop the cooking process.  Cut the corn off of the cob (this is where the whole family gets involved and tries to see who can have the most kernels stay together LOL)  and put into freezer bags.  Freeze. 
 
When it is time to cook and enjoy I leave the corn in the sealed bag and pop it right into the microwave for a few minutes.  Open the steaming hot bag, drop a pat of butter into the bag, salt lightly, serve and enjoy the fresh taste of summer no matter what time of year it is!
 
YUMMY!!

Freezing corn works best as a group, one cooking, 1 cooling, 1 cutting it off the ears and one bagging.

Sweet corn is one of summer’s simplest, purest pleasures. A fresh-picked ear, grilled to caramelized perfection and lightly buttered, offers incredible, complex sweetness, an intoxicating texture and plenty of nutrition benefits to boot.

Corn and everything nice that it can give is really amazing. The everlasting scent of a new boiled corn, or a new popped core, or even the smell of a fresh corn cob can really make your mouth water. The taste of it plus the salt and butter on top is indeed a summer golden treasure. I really like your blog because of its purity in giving this kind of idea to its readers. Thank you for a great read like this!
