Corn Husking

Last week I had an extraordinary experience.  My grandson spotted corn, in full husk in the refrigerator.  He immediately dove for them.  There were 8 cobs. I had paid $2 for all of them. We took them out to the back porch and put them on the floor. He knew exactly what to do. He pulled the husks off in a calm and methodical way.  This process occupied him for about 45 minutes.  He was very quiet and happy.  I predict if I had 50 heads he would have shucked them all.

Not only did he shuck them, but he cleaned them pulling all of the little fibers off.  Then he put them in a row like a train track. I was stunned at how much he enjoyed this process.

I have heard it said that food is much more gratifying if it has been handled and prepared by oneself.  The comparison would by like opening a peanut shell and eating the peanut.  Both boys had a lot of fun and I was thankful because he prepared most of dinner. YIPPEE
