DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 175 degrees C or 350°F.
  • Shuck the corn, reserving the husks.
  • Scatter the husks on a baking sheet. Top with an inverted cooling rack.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Cut the kernels from the cobs; reserve the corn kernels for some other use.
  • Place the corncobs and toasted husks, BUT NOT THE KERNELS, in a 6-quart or larger pressure cooker. Add the water.
  • Secure the lid and pressure-cook at 1-bar (low pressure) for 30 minutes (start timing when full pressure is reached). (If your stove runs hot, and it is difficult to maintain only 1 bar of pressure, either stack another burner grate or use a heat diffuser.).
  • Remove from heat, allow pressure to reduce naturally.
  • Strain through a sieve lined with 1 layer of cheesecloth.
  • Stock may be used warm or cold. Keeps for 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 6 months when frozen.
