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.

A generous neighbor gave me a large batch of fresh sweet corn from his garden and after I'd frozen the kernels using How to Freeze Fresh Corn I had all those cobs left over and remembered seeing this recipe so decided to give it a try. I followed the directions and did add 3 drops of yellow food coloring just because I wanted to make sure it had some color. I did skip the straining part as I like the looks of flecks in my jellies. It turned out wonderful and from what I was able to taste on the spoon very yummy with that slight, sweet apple flavor. I did small jars as not sure how it would go over - but now know it'll be enjoyed and will be an interesting addition to my gift baskets.
