Corn 🌽🌽

Yield: depends on how much corn is used.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Processing Time: 85 Minutes
Difficulty: Expert

Ingredients: Corn! (Ideally eating quality ears with slightly immature kernels)

Directions:

- Place the required number of clean 500 ml or 1 L mason jars on rack in pressure canner; add water and heat jars to a simmer (180°F/82°C). Set screw bands aside; heat SNAP LID® sealing discs in hot water, not boiling (180°F/82°C). Keep jars and sealing discs hot until ready to use.

- Husk corn, remove silk and wash ears.

- RAW PACK – Cut kernels from cob; do not scrape. Pack kernels loosely into jars. Season & add liquid.

- Heat Process 500 ml jars – 55 minutes; 1 L jars – 85 minutes at 10lb (69kPa) in weighted gauge pressure canner.

- HOT PACK – Cut corn from cob, do not scrape cob. Measure corn into saucepan. For each 4 cups (1 L ) corn add 1 cup (250ml) water. Bring to boil; reduce heat, boil gently 5 minutes. Pack loosely into hot jars. Season, add liquid.

- Heat Process 500 ml jars – 55 minutes; 1 L jars – 85 minutes at 10lb (69kPa) in weighted gauge pressure canner.

- Using nonmetallic utensil, remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rim removing any stickiness. Centre hot sealing disc on clean jar rim. Screw band down until resistance is met, then increase to fingertip tight. Return filled jar to rack in canner. Repeat for remaining corn. If stacking jars, place a second rack between layers of jars.

- When pressure canner is full, adjust water to level as directed by canner manufacturer. Lock canner lid in place and follow manufacturer’s heating instructions. Vent canner–allow steam to escape steadily–for 10 minutes; close vent.

- When canner reaches the pressure appropriate for your altitude* and type of pressure canner, begin counting processing time. Process – heat filled jars – in pressure canner for time indicated above.

- NOTE: processing times indicated are for a weighted gauge pressure canner used at altitudes up to 1,000 ft (305 m). When using a dial gauge pressure canner or canning at higher elevations, adjust pressure according to chart.

- When processing time is complete turn off heat. Allow canner to stand undisturbed until pressure drops to zero. Wait 2 minutes, and then remove cover, tilting it away from your face. Remove jars without tilting. Cool upright, undisturbed 24 hours; DO NOT RETIGHTEN screw bands. After cooling check jar seals. Sealed discs curve downward. Remove screw bands; wipe and dry bands and jars. Store screw bands separately or replace loosely on jars, as desired. Label and store in a cool, dark place.
