Red Corncob Syrup Recipe
6 red corncobs, washed
3 quarts water
3 pounds brown sugar
In large kettle or stockpot, boil corncobs in water for 1 hour; strain.
Add brown sugar and enough additional water to make 3 quarts. Boil until thick enough or to consistency of maple syrup.
Be sure to select clean cobs, free of mold. Light-colored cobs make lighter syrup, and Vallee says it has a better flavor.
