My shuckers made real fast work of the corn. They actually ENJOYED shucking it and were worried the corn would all get shucked before they had a chance to shuck their share! LOL Shucking corn outside means you do not have to worry about the mess. After we had all of the silk off the ears, we put six ears in each freezer bag. Just drop into boiling water when you need it and cook as always. It will be nice and fresh. I will be watching for corn as the season gets more in swing. I'm hoping for an even better deal later in the season. I also buy apples, peaches, berries and cabbage in bulk when they are in season, as our garden, fruit trees, and berry bushes don't produce enough for a family of six.
