Pat or ShellieESterling know a good source?
Well, I'm not sure where you could find it locally. Here, everywhere carries it. Even the Dollar General stores. :lol:
Here's the website to the brand we buy all the time.
http://www.jerseyporkroll.com/ -- perhaps you can buy it there and have it shipped or something? Good luck, it's soooo worth it. :D

ETA-- We get the little red boxes of pre-sliced.

Here is how my corn is preserved. Ingested as a soup and even as a juice periodically. It is vrry rich and filling. Eat to live not live to eat.

Corn is in season now.It is of the highest quality. Cost is six dollars for 14 cobs if you have your own bag. Eighty four cobs were processed into 22 litres of juice.Twenty one litres was pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage and one litre was placed in the refrigerator for current use.Some peppers,okra and egg plant, since they were available from the garden, was added to the cooking pot.Water was added to make the product liquid enough for drinking. Each litre of juice contains 3.8 cobs of corn. Annotated photos depict the process.

My corn crop ended up with about 10 ears.. and those were mostly cob, not corn.
But then a neighbor came by and dropped off a couple dozen ears! So I'm going to try freezing it this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes. :D

Thanks Dew. There were only 12 plants to start with so I suppose that as far as ear-count goes it was real good. We had some really weird weather after they got started (like everyone else) so they really struggled. I suppose that having any corn at all was an achievement. Next year, I'm thinking that I might do a whole patch just in corn.. who knows..
