This recipe is a very old one, from a neighbor in Indiana.
We had enjoining farms.
Row crops, field corn and soy beans.That was back in the early 50,s.
My!My! Where do them years go ??

This recipe makes a reddish jelly and tastes something like apple jelly.
Enjoy.........
You can do the same with
Fresh Sweet Corn cobs, and get a lovely pale yellow color jelly.
