    I have an obsession with corn and black bean salsa!! Now I can make my own. can it or freeze it while tomatoes and corn are plentiful from gardens in my area!! It will be 100% made in Murika!!

    I skip the bowls and stand the corn up in a lasagna pan, deep sided roasting pan, and cut away. Or use a really deep mixing bowl. You still have corn that misses whatever you use, just cause that’s what happens. You should see my kitchen after canning beets!

      Oh sweet! That would avoid washing another dish…and prevent the problem I ran up against in the video. Thanks, Kathy!
