Corn harvesting time

I have been fighting the raccoons for my sweet corn for a number of weeks now.  They come in at night, climb the stalks and pull off the best ears.  So, I decided it was time to just pull it all out.  I got about 30 ears in total.

Soju, of course, got an ear to chew on while I worked.

After I cut it all off, I had a huge pot of corn kernels.  I put some into my roasted tomato salsa.  

The rest I mixed with a little butter, water and salt.  I cooked it about 8 minutes at a low simmer then packed big bags and froze it.  We will have sweet corn to enjoy this winter!
