One thing .. this is what I would call a "loose" product .. doesn't get "tight and thick" like a marmalade will, yet it set up nicely and is very easy to use as well as delicious !
6 ears of corn
1 qt of water
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp powdered pectin
Sugar equal to reduced liquid
I cooked the corn then cut the kernals from the cob.
Break the cobs in half and put them in a pot with 1 qt of water.
Bring to a boil and boil hard for 30 minutes - uncovered.
For Jelly strain the liquid to remove the bits of corn. For Jam .. leave them in there.
Measure the liquid you have left. Return it to the pot. Add sugar equal the amount of liquid. Stir in lemon juice and pectin. Bring to a boil and boil hard for 1 minute stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and ladle into prepared jars.
Boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
Makes about 2 half-pint jars.
