Corncob Jelly? What? Oh yea, tasty stuff!

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.

Hermit Cookies

This is a recipe my mom makes every year around the holidays, one of the family favorites. Although they are great anytime if you love spice cookies. They are a spice cookie and they are the best, softest and most moist cookie ever! I wish I had some pictures for you on this one but I have to work this morning so no time for baking yet again today sorry. I do want to share this recipe though… I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 cup shortening

1 1/2 cup sugar

3 eggs

3 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup chopped nuts ( we use walnuts )

Directions:

Cream the shortening, sugar and eggs. Dissolve the soda in a teaspoon of water and add to creamed mixture. Then add flour, salt and spices to the creamed mixture and mix well. Add your raisins and nuts last and mix them in. You may omit the raisins and nuts if you like.

Drop about a tablespoon full for each cookie on greased cookie sheets or on parchment paper (If I remember correctly it makes about 2 dozen depending on how large you make them we like big fat cookies LoL.)

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes
