    We came back to the homestead after a two month absence, to find 12 foot stalks of our goat poo nourished Hickory Cane- from the corn Ken sent me.

    Can anyone tell me how to dry stalkless ears of the corn,??
    We have to leave early tomorrow for my brothers wedding.
    I can refrigerate them for 3 days, if I can't prepare them quickly tonight.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    I'd leave them on the stalks until they dry down. If they need more time yet, lay them out on the garage or shed floor, shelves, where ever, to finish drying.

    Thanks Bugstabber.

    We picked them for our return trip to suburbia. I have tied the husks and left them to dry.
