It's that time of year Again!
I have never dehydrated sweet corn before, but it turned out very well. First, of course, I took the husks and silks off of the cobs, then I blanched them in boiling water for 3 minutes. Next they were plunged into cold water. After that I cut the kernels off the cobs and put them on the sheets that you use for fruit leather, in the dehydrator and dried them until they were thoroughly dry. Then, into the jar! There is more than a quart. Can you believe that is about 1/2 bushel of sweet corn?
And here is a photo of what I brought in today. There are a lot more potatoes out there, but the weather has been so hot and dry that some of them have begun to rot, so I've started digging them up. The tomatoes are really getting into full swing now, and the cucumbers and zucchinis are slowing down.
I am so very grateful for all of this lovely organic produce! I have shared this post HERE.
