"I made this some time ago, but I never reviewed it. Looked it back up today, so I can make it again soon. :) We loved it. I froze the corn for later use and used the cobs for the jelly. Love the dual purpose! My sons loved this on fresh biscuits. Just one slight note, I didn't use the yellow food coloring."

"I just made a batch of this. I did one step a bit differently though. Instead of using water, I saved the water from the blanching of the corn & used it instead. Turned out great! My grandmother used to make this too. Love it!"
