So... May came and went, and I almost forgot to do my monthly preservation! Luckily I have an amazing sister in-law who loves coming over and sharing in my canning fun. We got a whopping 55 pints done. It took about 120 ears of corn, and luckily it was on sale for $.15 an ear at the local grocery store. They looked at me a little funny after purchasing so much. One gentleman even said I looked like a gal who would grow my own corn, which I took as a huge compliment.
Like most of my canning recipes, I think I got this one from pickyourown.org, but I’ll give you a quick rundown.
You must use a pressure canner. I will say this again. Botulism is not something to mess around with!! Consult your canner guide for more specific instructions on processing corn. The recipe we used said 10lbs for 55 mins for pints, 85 mins for quarts.
