Here's the recipe I used last year as well as the note I added to the end today that it is not safe to BWB needs to be PC.
Maybe Judylou will tell us how long we need to PC for it to be safe.
CORN COB JELLY
12 sweet corn cobs, corn removed
4 cups water
4 cups sugar
1 box fruit pectin
Bring water with cobs to a boil and boil for 10 minutes. (boiled mine for 20 minutes)
Measure 3 cups and strain thru wet cheesecloth.
Pour into a large saucepan with pectin and bring to a rolling boil.
Bring back to a boil and boil for 3 min.
Skim foam off top. Put in jars, wipe rim with a damp cloth and cap.
Boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
Add food coloring if you want. (Be careful of color, if using yellow it can and will turn out looking like urine)
Tastes like a cross between apple and honey.
Notes: Later learned that with no acid added in this recipe, that it is not safe to boiling water bath, needs to be pressure canned.
