I boiled a 16 quart stockpot full of bi-color and white cobs for about 20-25 minutes, strained it and got 4 quarts of "corn water" which I took 4 cups of with only two cups of sugar and a box of low sugar pectin.
It turned out amazing! Sweet and so honey-like! I plan on making another (double) batch with the rest of it tomorrow - I got three pint jars and about 1/4 of another one from it. Just great!
This is one of the easiest jellies to make....I am glad I tried it--corn season is upon us! The taste is quite surprising...light, sweet & has a hint of something in the background I can't quite put my finger on--very tasty though. This one is going in my gift baskets...what a nice surprise! Thanks for a Great Recipe!
Very interesting recipe. And, it is VERY SWEET and the sweetness does taste just like honey.
I didn't add the food dye, so it is pretty clear.
I must admit....I'm very surprised. After reading such an interesting recipe, how could I not give it a try. I had just made Cream-Style Corn for the Freezer, so had plenty of cobs that would have just gone into the compost. This is very tasty. Much like honey, and so *easy*. I ended up with 5, 1/2 pint jars. Thanks for sharing Jellyqueen
How unique!! I made this today.. and had the hardest time coming up with the liquid... I boiled 2 batches of cobs (20 total cobs)and could only come up with 2 1/3 cups liquid. It killed me to add the water... It still turned out nicely though. I also didn't strain the liquid since I thought the small corn chunks made it kind of pretty... I got 5 1/2 pint jars out of all of it and intend to give some away as Christmas gifts. i taste tested it thought out and it was good! Sweet with a slightly bitter undertone... very much like honey! Thanks for the unusual recipe!!
This did not set for me. I opened the jars and redid it, using more pectin, but it was still like water. I tasted it, and at that point all I could taste was pectin. I did add a small amount of additional sugar when I reprocessed, but still no luck. I imagine when this turns out it is good, but it didn't do it for me. :(
This is called "open kettle canning" and it has been shown to be UNSAFE! Any and all jellies and jams should be water-bath canned for safety.
My wife Patti and I made this jelly 7/29/13 it was fantastic.
This is soooo good. I tried to cut the recipe down. I had bought a pack of corn, that only had four in it. The amount of water wasn't enough, so added more, don't know how much, so, it didn't turn out right. It didn't get thick. I boiled it some more, and put just a pinch more of pectin into it. It turned out perfect. We just love it. Can't wait to buy more corn and make more. This time I will make the full recipe.<br/>Update<br/>I made this again last night. I used the 12 ears of corn this time, and followed the recipe. The amount of water just isn't enough. You need to put at least 2 or 3 more cups in. I didn't have 3 cups of liquid, so had to put the cobs in and boil again. It turned out really good. It really don't make much. I just fill the jars, turn them upside down on the counter for awhile, then, I left them out all night, and put in the fridge in the morning. Works fine for me.<br/>Sure is good. It is our favorite jelly.
I followed the ingredients/directions to a T. It was easy to make as is any other jelly, only instead of juice of fruit, it was corn cob "juice." The only thing I didn't like was the taste. I didn't think it tasted like honey at all. It was very sweet, like sweet corn syrup. But that was just me, because others liked it a lot. I'm glad I had the experience of making this. It was an interesting recipe. :o)
