Good morning everyone! I hope you have all been having a great week. I made something new to me yesterday. Corn cob syrup! This is the recipe I used.
I got the recipe from http://canninggranny.blogspot.com/2014/07/corn-cob-syrup.html?m=1
I got the idea from That 1870’s Homestead https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ONu6L334ICA
This syrup was so much fun to make.
First I boiled the cobs in a big pot for about two hours.
I was amazed at the pretty color of the juice.
I then boiled it down for about one and a half hours until it reached a temperature of 220 degrees Fahrenheit. I removed the foam as it boiled. I used 8 cups of corn juice, 4 cups of brown sugar and about 1/4 cup of molasses and got nine 4 oz jars. I also canned 3 qts of just corn juice to use later to make more.
I thought it was very good. Next time I want to make a batch using white sugar and vanilla to see which one I like best.
I always like to try new things. God bless.
