We get alot of question on proper storage for raw corn. Most folks won't have a mositure meter and usually determine when corn is dried enough on how easy it comes off cobs. We highly suggest storing corn in glass jars. You can find many different shapes and sizes but the size of the jar regardless of shape will hold the same amount of corn. 1 qts ~1.5 lbs. 1/2 gallon ~ 3lbs. A gallon ~6lbs. 50 gallon garbage bin~ 200lbs. If your not sure what size your container is, turn it over and it usually states on the bottom. This will give you an idea on how much corn you have stored and how much your family uses each year.

We have been getting so much cool buzz on our traditional corn bread, we wanted to share a quick post to answers all your questions.
Our Kan^stohale "corn bread" is used with our traditional heriloom white corn that gets processed into flour by hulling corn with wood ash and dehydrated. We then grind the corn into flour and prepare our wheels into 1.5lbs balls with red beans and form them into what looks like a wheel. We then boil each wheel for 30 minutes and put them in an ice bath to cool so we can package for retail.
You then reheat the wheel and smother with maple syrup, butter, salt or anyting your heart desires. Yawe.ku- Tastes good
We do not ship the completed corn bread because it is a refrigerated product. We do have flour for sale but its only sold locally here in Oneida Wisconsin.
Yaw^ko- Thank you so much for the inquires as it gives us the opportunity to share our knowledge.
Everyone did such a great job. #oneidashines
Inga visits the agricultural projects of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin.
We want to give a big Yaw^ko to our students from Oneida Nation High School's sustainable class for their assistance helping us prepare Kan^stohale for our community holiday orders. We have 700 orders to fill.
A glimpse of a day in the cannery...150lbs of corn hulled with wood ash for four, 5 bushles of apples for Apple Chips sold at the Oneida Market and 75 lbs of smoked Turkey legs from Maplewoods; cooked and package for corn soup orders. This is just a day as we schedule multiple productions each day to handle the growing demand of cannery services.
Corn Fact...Oneida Cannery processed 11,609 lbs of white corn for the fiscal year of 2018-2019.

Few tips from questions we get:
Can you Freeze Corn Bread? Yes but suggested to leave in package and boil to keep the integrity of shape because when thawed out corn bread will break apart.
Does it need to stay refrigerated? Yes, both corn bread and fresh hull need to be refrigerated. They both have a shelf life of 3 weeks and dates are on package visible to see. If package seal breaks, both products are still safe until their due date. We have made sure with our lab pathogen testing to include if seal comes undone to ensure our community’s safety after it leaves our facility.

Enjoyed our morning with members from the Methodist Church prepping squash for their annual Harvest Dinner.
A little fun for the locals... Guess how many Kan^stohale wheels the cannery produced in the 2018-2019 fiscal year for the Oneida community to win a wheel? Voting poll will stay open for 24 hours and the person closest will win a corn bread, pick up at Cannery.
Join in the corn fun this Saturday!!! Vets are making their booyah, corn husk mats, corn husk dolls, corn mush roasting and farmers market vendors will be there as well. Rain or Shine because they have large tents to accomdate the weather.
You can find all of our products at the Oneida Market, Dehydrated white corn and Kan^stohale at 54 One Stop and assorted products at the Oneida Museum.
Tomato season...Green Salsa done!
We cant wait for these beauties to be in full bloom. Tsyunhehkwa is doing an amazing job! The cannery will roast some seeds but the purpose of this field is to bring more organic matter to the soil as this land parcel is prepping to be a white corn plot. The sunflower has such a thick stock that brings so much green manure to create healthy soil.
Yay!!! TSYUNHEHKW^ planted 12 acres of sunflowers and they are going to be in full bloom in the next 10 days, so exciting! Stay tuned the oneida community will get a chance to come out and purchase some cut sunflowers or tour the fields, very soon. Any questions let me know [email protected] kyle Wisneski tsyunhehkw^ Supervisor🌻🌱🌻🌱🌻🌱🌻
We are getting ready to switch our equipment over to prepare for Apple season. August 19th will be the last day to schedule or drop off community corn for personal processing until Jan 1st.
Amazing time picking cherries in Door County.
Enjoyed our day with our Summer youth group harvesting blueberries. We want to thank Blueberry Haven for such hospitality. Berries are amazing, very clean farm and just great friendly service. Many fun and yummy products to come...stay tuned!
Sweet grass picking on this beautiful ☀️ day with the youth group. 🌱
Berry season is in 🍓! That means it's jam time! 🤗😋
We Freeze Dried our first batch of Strawberries. The difference between freeze dried an dehydrated is amazing. You keep the integrity of the shape and the nutrients with freeze drying. The shape and color of the berries that go in machine come out the same way. You almost can't tell which one is fresh and which one is freeze dried🤗
Great day picking strawberries at Porter's Patch today with our summer youth group. So many yummy strawberry products to be made. 175lbs picked and cleaned.🍓
Our summer youth workers started this week 😊. Today we made Strawberry & Mixed Berry White Corn Muffins. Yummy! 😋

Today's happenings... Kan^stohale and maple sugar.
Sneak peek of our new jam labels...
Fact of the day: The Cannery has assisted the community and the Oneida school system with processing "canning" over 100 gallons of Maple the past two weeks...can't imagine what the next two weeks will bring. All this maple is consumed by our community and is not for profit. That is well over a couple thousand gallons of sap collected. 🍁🍁🍁🍁
Sharing our knowledge is the key to our sucess.
