Hopefully I will be preserving my sanity by getting out of the house for a while and away from that screaming little brat in the park behind me. She has made this a VERY LONG summer and I can't wait for school to start so she can get on that little yellow school bus and be carted far away from here where she can scream her head off on someone else's playground!

In a large bowl, combine the following ...
20 C Corn
2 Tbl Salt
5 C Ice
1 C Cold Water

Stir perodically until ice is completely melted.

I scooped the corn and liquid into freezer bags and froze. We've had 2 bags since I froze them and because of the salt water added with the corn, I didn't have to add any water to my pan or any salt to the final dish. I also think the corn was a bit firmer than normal.

My house smells like an Italian restaurant! I have 3 trays of Roma tomatoes roasting in the oven. I added garlic, sea salt, pepper, Greek basil, Greek oregano, rosemary, and a bit of the smoked garlic powder from last weekend's post-garlic festival outing (brushed the toms first with EVOO).

On the subject of corn, has anyone made a corn salad and frozen that? I have made freezer pickles and freezer coleslaw and have been pleased with the results, just wondering about freezing corn salad....

You're roasting tomatoes with Greek oregano and Greek basil and your house smells like an ITALIAN restaurant? I don't understand...

Did 10 jars of salsa, a pint of pickled beets and 4 quarts (bags) of green beans with a friend new to preserving last night and then 6 pints of my own tomatoes today. I should be good on my tomatoes for a week or so then will have another batch ready to can.

I have been hunting all over DC and I can't seem to find instructions for dehydrating tomatoes or a recipe for roasting them. If anyone has a link, please post it.
