The first step when the ears are dry is to shell the corn. Our corn sheller is old but works perfectly, the cobs came out clean. Next year however, we will build a box for it. The bowl is just to small to catch it all.
After it is shelled we need to winnow it. For this a fan was set up outside.
You can see the chaff on the ground around the bowl.
The kernels are pretty.
and they grind perfectly to make cornbread.
There is no better popcorn than fresh from the cob.
But Zac judges popcorn on how well it flies.....
guess we passed there too!
