I have made this recipe for many, many years now. It was my grandmother's recipe in the beginning. Our whole family loves it. It tastes like apple jelly.

This was fun to make! Has a mild apple-like flavor. I let my cobs boil a little too long and had to add more water and start again, so next time I'd start with 6 cups of water. Not sure if this has enough acidity to be safe in a water bath, so I just refrigerated the jars. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
