  • Does anyone can corn?
    Years ago, I know there was a contrevorsy over whether corn could be canned or not. I know years ago a grandmother whom would can it with a green tomato on top. To help with the acid. I am in a dilema this year. THANKFULLY the small chest freezer is full. I hard time getting freezer slaw in last night. But it leaves no room for freezing much of the garden goodies this year. Corn is one thing that will definately be put away this year. Because this has been one of the best years for growing it, in a long time. Corn and pie filling and fruit pies are some of the things I know would be put away in the freezer for later use. I know I will have to buckle down and can pie filling. Which I have done before. Pies/dumplings I just prefer to make over canning filling. Any help would be appreciated. And no I can't afford a new freezer. It's on the I would like list. But after pricing them, it will have to wait.

    Yes you can can corn, I haven't canned it in a few yrs because have frozen it instead. The main drawback is that it takes quite a bit more processing time than some things such as green beans,, I don't have my canning book here in front of me but do be sure and can it in a pressure cooker, not the waterbath method. I think it might be as long as 60 min per qt at 10 lbs pressure but as I say my book is not in front of me. At one time I had a recipe where you added about 1 tsp of lemon juice per qt and that made it more acid and also kept it very bright yellow and pretty. Was very good,kept it just like the good brands that you buy in the can such as freshlike etc. I will look up my canning book for you later. But do can it rather than letting it go, will be very good this winter.

    I haven't made it in years but used to do corn relish which is another way to keep it on hand.

    Canning Sweet Corn
    There are two ways to can sweet corn, both involve using a pressure canner. When canning sweet corn, select ears containing slightly immature kernels, or of ideal size for eating fresh. Sweeter varieties or immature corn may cause browning in the canned product. Test it by canning small amount. Check color and flavor before canning large amounts. A bushel of corn yields six to eleven quarts of canned corn.

    Preparation for canning:
    To prepare whole kernel corn for canning, blanch the ears for three minutes in boiling water. Cut the corn off the cob at about three-fourths the depth of the kernel. Do not scrape the corn. You can hot pack or raw pack.

    Pretreat new lids by following the manufacturer's directions on the package.

    Hot pack method:
    To hot pack, add 1 cup of hot water to each quart of kernels in a saucepan.
    Heat to boiling and simmer 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of salt per quart, if desired. Fill clean canning jars with corn and cooking liquid, leaving 1 inch headspace.
    Adjust jar lids and process.
    Raw pack method:
    To raw pack, fill the jars with the raw kernels of, leaving 1 inch headspace.
    Do not shake or press down.
    Add 1 teaspoon of salt per quart jar, if desired. Add fresh boiling water, leaving 1 inch headspace.
    Adjust jar lids and process.
    Pressure Canning:
    The recommended processing times for the hot pack and the raw pack methods for whole kernel corn are as follows:

    When using a dial-gauge pressure canner, process pints at 55 minutes at 11 PSI and quarts at 85 minutes at 11 PSI.
    When using a weighted-gauge pressure canner, process pints at 55 minutes at 15 PSI and quarts at 85 minutes at 15 PSI.

    Have heard lots of cooks have the problem of their corn turning brown after canning:

    What causes corn to turn brown during processing?

    This occurs most often when too high a temperature is used causing caramelization of the sugar in the corn. It may also be caused by some minerals in the water used in canning.
