    Does anyone here make pickled corn? If so, the only part that I am missing from my great-granmothers 100+ year old recipe is the duration in which to keep the corn in the crock. Help?

    Nope it's a full cob packed in a really big stone crock. My granny has been asking me to make it for her and she finally found the recipe but the bottom was too faded [​IMG] My granny is 86

    Awww thank you, it is not what I am looking for but you are a doll for looking all that up!! This is like making sauerkraut, where you put it in a large crock for a long duration (?) and then after that time it has a certain flavor. It never leaves the cob or the crock unless it is about to be eaten. It is also salt cured and not vinegar cured although it does call for 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar. I hope I am making sense!
