Corncob "Maple" Syrup
Well, suppose that you can't get that much maple syrup. What do you do then?
"Cover one dozen large, clean corn cobs with water; boil one to two hours. Drain off the water and strain it (there should be 1 pint of it). Add 2 lbs of brown sugar to this and boil to desired thickness."
Besides flying squarely in the face of a pissed off Charlie P, I wonder if there would be any advantage to using the corn water?
Don't look at me. I'm not gonna try it. I hate corn. And even if I liked it, I'd need at least 480 corncobs, and I don't live in corn country. Maybe someone from out there would like to give it a try. . .
