Being aware that mature corn kernels have a large amount of cellulose roughage, it was decided to remove this, by making a corn juice.The kernels were cut off twelve cobs of fresh picked corn,then two litres of water was added, and the corn cooked in a double boiler for about an hour (less chance of burning).The cooked product was hand blended into a slurry, then strained using a food mill.The residue from the food mill was put through a Champion Juicer to extract the maximum nutrients.Three litres of juice was obtained, which was pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes.
