The corn and the serrano peppers are another matter. We've got too much of both.
My friend Karen of Promoting Central Indiana's Local Food Culture recommended a way to preserve the corn for use in winter. The steps are simple enough - clean the corn, blanch it, then shock it in an ice water bath. Karen recommends vacuum sealing the corn with something like the FoodSaver to avoid freezer burn.
Sounded like a simple plan. I got five ears of corn ready to go and waited for the water to boil.
You can imagine my surprise when I returned to the kitchen to blanch the corn and found two ears of corn. A quick scan of the house solve the mystery. Sam, our rescue beagle, at three ears of corn, cob and all.
