Why is it unsafe to can cream-style corn in quart jars?
Cream-style corn is high in starch and very dense. For adequate processing to occur, cream-style corn in quart jars would have to be cooked so long that the quality would be very poor (changes in flavor and color would be unacceptable). For this reason, processing jars larger than one pint is not recommended.
