Corncob Jelly? What? Oh yea, tasty stuff!

07 Sep

I found this recipe last year and never got around to trying it, so this year after freezing some corn I decided to make use of the cob’s and give this recipe a try. I will definitely be making this jelly again. It tastes a lot like honey! We love it!

So here is the share for all of you!

12 large corn cobs

4 cups of water

1 package of powdered fruit pectin

4 cups of sugar

Yellow food coloring ( optional )

Note: I never add food coloring to my jelly. Natural is better!

So first off you need to cut the corn off the cobs and reserve for another recipe or freeze it like I did! In a stockpot, place your cobs and water, and bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes.

Discard the cobs and strain the liquid through a cheesecloth. Liquid should measure 3 cups after boiling, add extra water if necessary.

Return to the pot and stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil. Add sugar and bring it back to a boil again. Skim foam and if you are adding food coloring add it now.

Pour into hot jars leaving a 1/4 inch head space. Adjust two piece caps. Process 10 minutes in a boiling water canner. Let cool! Makes about 4 pints. I liked it so much I have made 3 batches.

    This may sound soooo silly, but what does this jelly taste like? I can’t even imagine! 🙂
