Corn Cob Jelly (posted by kristenofchaos on Tasty Kitchen)
- 4 cups water
- 1 box pectin crystals (I used Certo)
- 4 cups sugar
- 12 cobs of corn, raw and corn removed
Using 12 corn cobs from which sweet corn has been cut (raw) add 4 cups of water to a large pot.
Bring to a boil. Boil 10 minutes then strain through a cloth for 3 cups of liquid. (I used cheesecloth. You can buy jelly bags.)
Add more water if needed to make the total. (I had to add water, so I think next time, I would add more from the get go)
In a fruit pan, add 1 box of pectin and bring to a rolling boil.Add 4 cups of sugar (all at once) and bring to a boil once again. (I removed the cobs from the pot and added it back and used the same pot. I skimmed the foam off too.)
Food coloring may be added at this time. (I added 3-4 drops of yellow colouring)
Strain and put into jars and seal. (I didn't strain it a second time.)
Quite tasty. Doesn't taste like corn. Has a light, delicate honey like flavor.
