Pickled Baby Corn

I reminisced at our local farmers market when I saw cutesy little 5 ounce jars of pickled corn selling for $4 to $5. My mouth watered. Returning home, I searched out Grandma's handwritten recipe card which chronicled:



  • 2 qt. immature field corn ears, picked when only 2-3 inches long
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. pickling spice tied in a bag.


Husk and boil the corn for 4 minutes, no longer. Pack it into hot sterilized jars and cover with syrup made by boiling the other ingredients for 5 minutes.

Seal and store in your basement and bring them out when you want to intrigue your most interesting guests. Delicious.

A gallon tin of baby corn ($4.00 from local supermarket) produced 20 - 8 oz jars of this delicacy.

Can I used canned baby corn in brine instead of fresh baby corn?

I don't have access to the fresh stuff.
