Freezing Corn

Today, Momma and I froze some yellow corn. Our generous neighbors gave us 112 ears from the 2000 ears of corn that they picked from their field. (They still have not finished picking!) We have wonderful neighbors all around us who share their harvest with us. We got a total of 16 quarts of corn to freeze.
Momma and I shucked corn in the garage while Ben mowed so the pests would stay away. (One pest was our dog who loves to steal corn!)
Maggie kept us company while we shucked.She also was the kernel test-taster.I was in charge of cooking the corn and moving it to cold water.Momma took the corn off the cob using a corn cutter.
We'll love this corn in the winter!
