this recipe is wonderful. it taste like honey and apples. it is great. thank you.
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.
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!
wonderful and it really does taste like apples, i like this recipe because your using everything you can from the ear of corn
Taste GREAT. We bought some of this at pigeon forge last year. I found a recipe, but i lost it before canning time. I made this three ways, First, just like the recipe says. Wonderful! Second, I remembered the other recipe i had, said to add 1 small box of red hots. I could'nt find them so i used 10 of the large cinnamon disc. I just desolved them in the 3 cups of hot juice then finished just like the recipe says. Third, I found the empty jar from last year and noticed it had apple juice as one of the ingredients. So i used 2 cups of the corn cobb juice one cup of apple juice and the 10 cinnamon disc in the next batch. It is all just great. I dont think this jelly can be bad.
I actually took this recipe as a joke...the jokes on me...my whole family likes it...we made ours red because I knew my grandkids would eat it if it was red...I've been giving the stuff to everyone I know, including the Chef at Hy-Vee...I'm really glad I copied this recipe...Thank-you
delicious! Great on buttered toast!
I love this recipe! I've made jelly from lots of disgards, but I never thought about corn cobbs. It's really good. It reminds me of my apple peel jelly recipe. I will make lots of this jelly as gifts.
Ok...I was skeptical and I tried it for the fun of it...but this really does taste a lot like honey! What a hoot to take something you would normally though out and make something yummy from it. I have frozen all my sweet corn...I should have tried this recipe before I threw out all those corn cobs! I'll know better next year! This recipe goes in my permanent file...thanks so much for sharing!
