Corn Cob Jelly

I was very intrigued when I first saw this recipe. I had to make it just to find out what all the hype was about. I'm so very glad I did. I've been making it for many years now and I really enjoy the delicate apple honey taste.

12 sweet corn cobs, corn removed
4 cups water
4 cups sugar
1 (1 3/4 ounce) box fruit pectin

Bring water with cobs to a boil and boil for 10 minutes.
Measure 3 cups and strain through wet cheesecloth.
Pour into a large saucepan with pectin and bring to a rolling boil.
Add sugar.
Bring back to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.
Skim foam if necessary and add food coloring if you want.
Ladle hot jelly into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust two-piece caps.
Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

Make 6 1/2 pints
