Corn Cob Jelly

Corn cob jelly is an old-fashioned treat that tastes just like honey!

Attribution Link

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 5 half-pints

Prep Time: 30 minutes   Cook Time: 40 minutes  

Ingredients

12 large ears of corn
2 quarts water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 package powdered pectin
sugar


Directions

Cook corn; cut kernels from cobs and store for another use. Measure 2 quarts water into a large pot; add corn cobs. Bring to a boil; boil hard for 30 minutes. (If you had the pot covered when you brought it to a boil, take the lid off now. Boil it down uncovered for a more concentrated result.) Turn off heat and remove cobs. Strain corn liquid through cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer–if desired. (I prefer to leave the corn bits in there!) Measure remaining corn liquid. I get a little over 3 1/2 cups corn liquid after it boils down. Return liquid to the large pot. Stir in lemon juice and pectin. (Add a dab of butter to prevent foaming.) Bring to a boil. Add sugar cup per cup to match the measure of your corn liquid. Stir to dissolve sugar. Bring pot to a rolling boil. Boil hard one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Ladle hot corn cob jelly into hot jars. Adjust lids and bands. BWB 10 minutes.

    My grandmother used to make corn cob jelly after she came back from visiting her hometown in the Ozarks. If memory serves me, she brought the cobs for it back with her and they were dried. Hers jelly was pink and she loved to serve it to people and have them guess what it was made from 🙂 Thanks for the memory!

    I was gifted some amazingly sweet, sweet corn so I just had to try this recipe. It was very easy to make and I agree it does taste like honey. I have given samples to family and they enjoyed it also. I love it when you can take something that would normally be discarded and give it a new life!
