Corn Corn Corn.........

Through a friend I bought a very large bag of corn. 70 ears to be exact! :)

Check SpellingBesides my own free child labor, I recruited Ashley's friend to help us along! :)

All 70 ears shucked and ready for the boiling pot!!! :) Aren't they pretty!!! :)

I actually used my turkey fryer to boil the corn in. I was able to put a lot more in and in this pic it's on my kitchen floor, from there I would lift out the draining insert and go to the ice bath in my kitchen sink. :)

All 70 ears drying. :)

Cutting it off the cob.

Kernels laid out to dry a little more..

5 Cups put into freezer bags. We got 6 bags, at 2 servings per bag..

The hardest lesson I'm learning about this path to self sufficiency is that, it takes a whole lot of food to have enough for my family. The corn will basically get me 12 meals.

Where and how are you all buying for large families?
