Corn cob jelly? Wow! What a great jelly to try! With corn season here, I will have plenty of cobs to play with. :) It is said to taste like honey. And can be used in place of corn syrup in recipes. I myself have not tried this yet, but plan to soon. No need to throw away the cobs! Make jelly from them! Great use for those 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. (you dont have to strain it, your choice)
Makes 5 half-pints.
