Here's a recipe that'll take you back to the good old days, straight from Granny's kitchen - Pickle Corn on the Cob. It's a real treat that's super easy to make and brings the flavors of summer right to your plate.


  • Fresh corn on the cob
  • 1/2 cup pickling salt
  • 1/2 gallon of water


Step 1: Steam and Chill

  • Start by steaming your fresh corn on the cob. It takes about 10 minutes until it's tender.
  • Let those steamed corn cobs cool down. No rush!

Step 2: Get Your Pickling Game On

  • In a container, mix up 1/2 cup of pickling salt with 1/2 gallon of water. Give it a good stir until the salt is all dissolved.

Step 3: Pickle It Up

  • Now, grab a crock or any suitable container you have.
  • Place your cooled corn cobs into the container.

Step 4: Drench in Pickling Goodness

  • Pour that prepared pickling solution right over the corn. Make sure it's fully underwater, no peeking allowed!

Step 5: Time to Ferment

  • Find a cool spot for your container and let the corn hang out there for about 10 to 14 days. This part is key - it's where the magic pickle flavor happens.

Step 6: Move and Chill

  • After the fermentation fun, if you want, you can transfer your pickle corn into a glass jar for storage.

Step 7: Keep It Fresh

  • Remember, pop that jar in the fridge to keep it fresh and tasty.

Optional Step: Preserving for Longer Fun

  • If you're feeling fancy and want to cut the corn off the cob, you can process it in pint jars using a water bath canning method. This gives it a longer shelf life.

Note: This recipe isn't just about the delicious pickle corn; it's like a warm hug from the past, a taste of Granny's kitchen. Enjoy! 🌽❤️
