Finally its time to start the “HOMEMADE RECIPES FEST”. From today you’ll get 1 or 2 recipes daily which you buy normally from market or grocery stores on much higher prices than the actual cost. So why to spend more when you can make them all at home easily.
Today’s recipe is “Sweet Corn”, you can get it in packs or Tins in every market but its just a simple work to make it at home with our Indian Corn. Just the difference is of size of the corn seeds as American Corns have big size seeds (even most of them is GMO labeled). And when you are making sweet corn , one more recipe you can make along… “Corn Syrup”. So many times you saw “Corn Syrup” in baking recipes but its either not available everywhere or you don’t buy it as not much use but here you can make it while you are making sweet corn. So today I will share 2 Homemade recipes :
SSJ’s HOMEMADE SWEET CORN and HOMEMADE CORN SYRUP
Corn – 2
Sugar – 1 and ¼ cup
For Sweet Corn :
First cut/break the corns in small pieces. Most of the time you find in sweet corn recipes that corn can cook as whole but when you break it then heat can spread evenly and you get the better taste in less time
Add corn pieces with ¼ cup sugar in a deep pan. Add 5 cups water and let it boil.
When water start boiling, put your gas on lowest flame and cover the pan.
Let it cook till water level get down till half, approximately 35 minutes.
Strain the corn pieces and pull out corn seeds when its warm. Your soft sweet corn is ready to use.
For Corn Syrup :
Now comes to the liquid which you get after straining. This liquid have all the flavor of corns.
Now put it in another pan and add 1 cup sugar.
When sugar dissolves, let it cook on low flame till thicken (minimum half the quantity).
Thickness of Corn Syrup is upto your choice but don’t make it much thick as when it stands, it will thicken on self also.
If your corn are much dry then add just pinch of Baking Soda while boiling, it will make them softer and juicy.
While storing sweet corn, add 3-4 tsp. corn syrup. It will keep them sweet and soft for long time.
You can store Sweet Corn and Corn Syrup both for a long time in your fridge.
That’s it. So easy, simple and fast and also budget saving.
