How to make it

  • Take a dozen or so of the cobs and break them into thirds. Put the pieces into a large pot and cover with water. It should take about 9-10 cups of water. Cover the pot and boil for 30 minutes.
  • While the cobs are cooking, get your jars and lids ready.
  • Drain and strain the corn cob liquid through a cloth, such as cheesecloth in several layers.
  • Take 6 cups of the liquid and put it back on the heat. Bring to a boil and add 2 packages of Sure-Jell.
  • Next, gradually add 6 cups of sugar. Return the pot to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent sticking or scorching. Boil for 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and ladle into the clean and ready jars.
  • Snugly apply the lids, cover the filled jars with a towel and allow them to self-seal.
  • This recipe makes about 5 pints.
