My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Old Fashion Pickled Corn

Thank you all so much for looking for Pickled Corn recipes for me. This is the one I decided to make and the one most like the one I made last year. My friend Edie found this one. But before we go any further let me tell you what I was told by the local extension office. This process is not FDA approved. That's all I'm going to say about that. You use your own judgement. It is sealed and many a grandmother has made this over many years. I personally have never known anyone to die or get sick from eating this.

The original recipe does not say to process at all. I did process mine for 15 minutes in a hot-water canner.

This solution is more than enough for 18 pints. I used 3 dozen ears of corn for 9 pints.

Pickled corn

1 gallon cold water
3/4 cup salt
1 cup vinegar (I used white)

Cook corn on the cob, cool in cold water and cut off cob. Pack jars, not to tight with corn, then fill with above solution. Remove air bubbles. Have seals hot and seal.


  1. I love the idea of pickling - but I have to say I've NEVER done it! - maybe I should start with corn - sounds like a great recipe!

  2. Oh you found one!Good,, I was wondering,, I've never heard of this,, my mum and gramma made corn relish but never this,, we love corn,, this does sound good and you know,, I never water bath my pickles and we have never had a problem,, or our jams but my mum and grandma did water bath tomatoes, green and yellow beans and peaches.

  3. Interesting about this pickled corn. I have never had it. Have you ever made watermelon rind pickles?

  4. I have never had pickled corn...will have to remember this when I have too much corn.

  5. Wow, this one is copied and saved or future use!

  6. This is the recipe that my Grandmother used. When she was going to can it. She also used the crock to put corn on the cob to pickle it is a lot more work. the only thing my grandmother went by the signs. I am going to try some when the sign is not right to see if there is any difference. If any one makes it at any time let me know how it does.
