SCRAPPY DOESN’T MEAN CRAPPY

I love creating beautiful food from the ugly and discarded, the typically trashed ingredients that make up almost 50% of our nation’s landline. It’s inspiring to see the final result a real thick honey out of corn cobs.

WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU NEED

only 4 ingredients :

  • corn cobs from 2 corn kernels
  • cornstarch
  • water
  • sugar

HOW DOES IT TASTE

Actually you won’t believe it, it tastes actually nothing like corn. It is also knows as a corn jelly. This delicious Corn Cob Jelly is light, sweet and tastes a whole lot like honey.

HOW TO STORE

To keep it thick and not runny you need to store in the fridge.

WHY MAKING SCRAPPY COOKING IS GOOD

We should all supports sustainability and promote low food waste using food we have till the maximum if not all of it. Up your cooking game. Turning your food scraps into meals doesn’t just up the quality of your life; it improves the life of the planet.

 

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL RESULT

You can freeze your corn cobs if you want to make a big batch, then allow boiling in water to let the flavor into the water.

Oh and one more fun little trick.

When I remove the corn cobs from the water, I allow them to dry out completely.

They make AWESOME fire starters for those fall campfires or fire pits.

 

THE CORN COB JELLY IS EXCELLENT ON:

  • Toasts
  • Pancakes
  • waffles
  • anywhere you would eat jelly or honey

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE FOR THESE VEGAN CORNCOB HONEY

Shelf life (for popped jars) is 1-2 years
