Preserving Method:Pressure Canning
You Will Need:
- 3 lb corn in husks (about 4 ears) per pint jar
- Salt, optional
- Glass preserving jars with lids and bands
- PREPARE pressure canner. Heat jars and lids in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Set bands aside.
- HUSK corn and remove silk. Wash corn cobs. Boil in a large pot of water for 4 minutes. Drain, discarding cooking liquid, and let cool slightly. Cut corn from cob. Scrape cobs to extract pulp and milk. Measure corn, pulp and milk together. For every 2 cups corn mixture, add 1 cup boiling water.
- TRANSFER corn mixture to a stainless steel saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and boil gently for 3 minutes, until heated through.
- LADLE corn and liquid into hot jars, leaving 1 inch headspace. Add 1/2 tsp salt to each jar, if desired.
- REMOVE air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding more corn and hot liquid. Wipe rim. Center hot lid on jar. Apply band and adjust until fit is fingertip tight.
- PROCESS filled jars in a pressure canner at 10 pounds pressure for 85 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.
