Sweet Corn that is. Yes, I did have the best intentions this weekend of blogging and sewing but instead I spent some time in the kitchen and at Sur La Table. I LOVE Sur La Table! So much so that I went twice. They have everything and more when it comes to handy kitchen gadgets to make my life easier.
Friday Todd and Donovan did all the hard work of picking this load of corn. Which left me to either get it prepared for canning or for freezing. I don’t have a pressure cooker to can the corn so I froze it. I always find that putting up food is a bit time-consuming. However, it is really worth it and I hope that in time I will learn to do it faster. Twenty jars later though I realized how much faster it went this time. Thanks to the OXO Good Grips corn peeler.
Which brings me to a summer give-away here at the urban homestead! Since it is already or soon to be time for the sweet corn harvest around the U.S. I thought I would give you all a chance to win a few of my favorite sweet corn related items. It will include that nifty corn peeler I now love so much, a Butter-boy for gliding butter over that hot cob of corn, a set of Zyliss interlocking corn holders so you can easily find a pair and a set of Ball freezer jars. These freezers jars are great…they are BPA free and they stack, lock together and store great. As always you will find an additional surprise that is not listed. So how do you get this little corn starter package. It is easy! Either you can leave a comment and tell me your favorite corn recipe & no you don’t have to list the recipe directions, unless you want to or you can subscribe to the blog. The winner will be chosen on August 10th.
