  • I know how to do freezer corn. This time of year is really good for buying books to do all that fun stuff, so you may just have to go and buy a book. Depending on what you are canning you may need a few things, like a pressure cooker, bottles and rings. Have fun. It is hard work, but fun.

  • If you are going to freeze them, just as Katie2233 said, wash and dry them and you can put most right in the freezer. I do this with most vegetables. Peppers I slice up and freeze first. Tomatoes, I just wash, dry, put in a zip lock bag, and into the freezer. I use them for cooking through winter. I would go the freezer route as long as you have the room Canning is more difficult, unless it's a vegetable that can't be frozen.
