Our best corn crop ever!!!

corncobs2015

Despite the strange unpredictable summer weather, we had a great corn crop.  We have had 2 almost 3 weeks of torrential rains and flooding. Farmers in our area have lost crops. Roads washed  out…. This weekend we had a break in the weather. We did not know how long the sunshine would last . We dressed warm and hurried outside and harvested the corn. We could see that the rain made mildew damage on the outer leaves of the cobs. We worked together in an assembly line ankle-deep in mud and water. The dogs were treated with the smallest cobs, which they devoured.  Hubby pulled the stalks and I shucked the corn. We composted everything else.

When we finished at the end of the day, we had 78 plus pristine ears of corn. We froze them. We had about that many ears of corn that were white kernels not yellow (not fully matured). We had corn cobs that had blotches of kernels on them. I made cream of corn with them. I have had cream of corn in the US before, but not in Sweden. I decided to try to make it myself. I love using it in corn bread recipe (American recipe), because it makes the bread so moist. It was a wonderful fall day. We marveled over the success of our crop.

I cut the kernels off the cobs with a knife. I put 70% of them in the food processor to finely chop them up. I put the other 30 percent and mixed them up in a pan together. I put butter, cream and turkish yoghurt in it. I seasoned it with salt and garlic to taste. I cooked them on a low setting.  I let it cool and placed it in plastic ziplock bags in the freezer.

  1. Well done! How satisfying to get such an abundant crop! Love to hear of your stories!

  2. Wow looks amazing – non GMO corn – I am jealous – Good job you two – That cream corn looks delicious Honey :)>

    • Thanks it still feels like a miracle, when a crop succeeds so well. It feels like Christmas, when you peel the skins back and find a beautiful corn cob inside. Considering last 2 years we have had larve infestation on cauliflower,cabbage and broccoli. This year I didn’t not even plant those crops. I am still researching on nontoxic ways to fight bug infestation.

THE INTERNET POST

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
