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!
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.
