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!
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.
