Preserving corn


Finally got  a round to picking the corn from my garden.  Instead of canning I decided to roast and dehydrate at the same time. It gives it, the taste of corn that has been cooked on the grill when you rehydrate it
First step, is to husk and clean the corn. then place in a pan of boiling water. Blanch for 5 minutes.


Next. cut the corn from the cob. Using a bunt pan makes it a lot easier.


Lay out on a pan in a single layer.  Cook in the oven on 200 for 4 hours. Stir every half hour. The corn will dry out and turn golden. I know this takes some time. But the taste is so worth it. When it is dried hard  it is done.

Place in a plastic bag or sealed glass jar. When ready to use. Rehydrate in a bowl of water. They will puff back up just like they were fresh. Cook and enjoy!    Preserving
