It's been a great year for our candy corn crop. 4 Acres all in full bloom. Hired extra hands to harvest. I'm not getting as much per bushel since it's such a bumper crop, but that's okay with me. We've had tons of sun, enough rain, and the corn bugs have not been too ravaging.
My root cellar will be full at least until Thanksgiving.
This is my favorite time of year, in case you can't tell, as candy corn is my favorite food. You get all three major food colors in one corn! Don't be fooled by imitators that put brown into the mix, to simulate chocolate. Chocolate! In candy corn!
I've got some Candy Corn Recipes that I'll share with you this week. My Aunt Tess made a Candy Corn Chowdah that was awesome. With Candy Crackers. That woman could cook.
I don't know where she got the idea for the candy corn meatloaf, but she pulled it off. Mashed potatoes , gravy, Jujy Fruits for dessert. Brilliant.
Well, gotta go clean out the Combine. More tomorrow.
