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.
