Today I went to the pumpkin patch with my family. I didn’t get a pumpkin because it’s a bit early, but I did get some fresh corn and other veggies for freezing. I froze corn last year and loved having fresh corn all year long.
It’s a pretty easy process. Husk the corn and boil for eight minutes. Then you put it immediately into ice-cold water. Then I cut the corn off and put it into a bowl. I use a big fork to break up the chunks so the kernels break apart.
Then I freeze them in individual sized bags that equal about one serving.
I also decided to make some applesauce from the apples I bought at the orchard a few weeks ago. I don’t know why, but I always thought applesauce was hard. It wasn’t at all. You just add about an inch of water to the bottom, cut up your apples and boil until soft. I added some plums and pineapple because the fruit was on the verge of going bad and I didn’t want to waste it.
I seasoned the applesauce with a little honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Delish!
