|Corn Patch Former Glory|
|A Mixed Bunch|
Given that it is November and we have frosty nights it is time to accept that the sweetcorn harvest time has arrived. Then comes the process of saving the edible part of the crop.
I've used what Lakeland call their Corn Stripper. It looks like a computer mouse (remember them?)
The underside houses the cutting edge.
Running the device along the length of each cob strips the kernels into the chamber above which can then be emptied into a freeezer bag.
If you have, as recommended, blanched the cobs in boiling water the whole process is still fraught with hazard. Disposable gloves are recommended both for hygiene and some protection from heat!
