Putting Up Corn

Every summer my dad's family would gather together to put up corn. That means we would get the corn from the fields, cut the ends off, shuck the corn, clean it with toothbrushes, blanch it, cool it in an ice bath, bag it. It was always a long day, but so much fun with family. As you grew older you got to do different jobs.
