Meanwhile, I blanched the sweetcorn, removed it from the cobs and then froze it in small packs. The timing was good as it is a couple of days since we finished last year's corn. I like the small packs as I use it in many ways: as a vegetable with a meal, in frittatas or soups. I also made some more chia seed jam - this time with frozen blueberries and some dahl for tonight's meal.
I also managed to get through to my step-daughter's partner as they were out when I phoned for his birthday yesterday. They live between Canberra and Sydney and have temperatures in the late 30's at present. At least our temperatures never get that high and are now down to the mid 20's.
