Corn Cob Uses

Put those corn husks and cobs to use.

Rinse the husks and pat dry and iron them on a tea towel over your ironing board. Lay them flat in a box and store away 'til you get around to finding a corn husk craft book, then make some corn husk dolls, wreaths, etc.

If you have a Granny or a Grandpa who has trouble with his teeth, cut corn from the cob and cook with a little water, salt and pepper and a little cream, if you wish.

And don't throw away those raw cobs either. Eight-ten of them will make a few jars of delicious corn cob "honey." The recipe can be found in the Jelly section of this book.

Now, after making your corn cob and "honey" don't throw away those boiled cobs! Hang them in the attic. separated so the air can get to them and forget them all summer. Next winter use them with a few feathers, pipe cleaners for legs, dried corn silk or yarn for hair to make "whatisits" (Granny  called them "play-pretties") for children's party favors or work projects for your Cub Scouts or Blue Birds. Now, what more could you ask of one ear of corn?
