Schuett Farms “Sweet” Sweet Corn is finally ready!

Schuett Farms “Sweet” Sweet Corn is finally ready!

We started this morning picking in a new batch of very sweet Sweet Corn! The ears are huge and taste great! I think it is even sweeter than the stuff we had earlier this week.

My personal favorite cooking recipe for corn is….. the quick and simple method.
How to cook Sweet Corn?
Bring water to a boil on the stove.
Peel corn and place in boiling water.
Once the water comes back to a boil, let the corn boil for about 3-4 minutes.
Take the corn out of water and let it cool before eating.
Of course I like to apply butter and salt before eating.

ENJOY!!!

Last night we had a birthday party so we fired up our turkey deep fryer! We shucked 2+ dozen corn and boiled water in the deep fryer. After we put the corn in and the water came back to a boil we let it continue to boil for 4 minutes….. perfection!! Could not have been easier :)

How To Keep Your Christmas Tree Fresh

How To Keep Your Christmas Tree Fresh

You can take a few simple steps to keep your real tree looking great, smelling great, and holding its needles strong until Christmas and beyond!

At the farm we have all pre-cut Christmas trees. When you get your tree home you will want to cut about 1-2″ off the bottom of the tree. Cut at a slight angle to increase surface area. Immediately put the tree in a 5 gallon bucket filled with water. The tree will “drink” a lot of water, so leave it in the bucket for about 24 hours.

Get your stand all ready! Here’s a stand we recommend because it has a wide base to make it sturdy and it holds a full gallon of water:

Take the tree directly from the 5 gallon bucket to the stand and fill it with water right away – never let the tree stand go dry!! If the base of your tree is dry for more than 30 minutes the sap will seal it so you should re-cut so the tree can continue to “drink”.

Sweet Corn is Ready!!!

Sweet Corn is Ready!!!

The drought is making it difficult to pick the corn. Right now, we don’t have as much corn ready to pick each morning as we would like so if you want corn please come early to make sure it isn’t sold out. All of our corn is bicolored this year and as always we do not spray the corn field with any pesticides!! Last year Hwy 83 was under construction so we weren’t able to sell at the farm but this year the highway is completely finished so all corn sales will take place at the farm. We are on Highway 83, north of Mukwonago, between Hwy I and Hwy X.
