Description

Don't be CORNfused

It doesn’t get any more rural than an evening of husking freshly picked sweet corn before slicing it off the cob. We’ll be husking 30 dozen cobs, which is enough corn to supply a family of four, all winter long. After removing niblets from the cob, we’ll blanch them to seal in that summer sweetness before bagging them up for the freezer. It might get sticky in the kitchen, but don’t worry…aprons are provided.

Takeaway: We’ll divvy up our bounty, sending everyone home with bags ready for the freezer.
