Real Homemade Corn Syrup


i live in Iowa ..and this is where alot of the country's corn comes from..So i will freeze some corn and also make corn syrup..I just put the cleaned ears of corn in a big pan and i bring it to a boil on the stove..i let it cook a few minutes..Then i take it out and cut the kernals off with a big knife..i put it in ziplock bags and thats it.Its ready for the freezer..ok then measure the water you cooked the corn in...Then put it through a colander to get all of the leftover corn, or whatever, out..So say its about 6 cups of water you had left..prolly more like 4 or 5..Anyway if it is 4 cups of the corn water strained then put in 4 cups of sugar in the pan with the 4 cups of water..And you bring this water and sugar to a boil and then let it cook a while..Keep stirring it until it thickens and is like pancake syrup..You may want to add a lil salt and some vanilla..Maybe a lil nutmeg..when its done just put it in the frig and it will thicken..You cud just put it in a big jar for the frig..The kids will eat it on pancakes if you dont tell them its corn water..love connie
