Corn Relish

Leave a comment

For my own notes, here is the recipe for the Corn Relish mentioned in the previous post.  The original recipe is here at Simply Recipes… all props to her. 

INGREDIENTS

1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, roughly chopped

2 cups of onions, chopped

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

4 cups corn kernels (cut from 4-6 ears, depending on how big the ears are)

2 plum or Roma tomatoes, diced the size of a corn kernel

1 red or green serano chile peppers, seeded and minced (I substituted one jalapeno pepper)

1 1/4 cups sugar

2 Tbsp Kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar (5% acidity)

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

2 teaspoons mustard seeds

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

DIRECTIONS

Working in batches if necessary, pulse the cucumbers, onions, and bell peppers in a food processor just 3 or 4 pulses, so they are still distinguishable from each other, not puréed.

Place mixture in a medium-sized (4 to 6-quart), thick-bottomed pot. Add the corn, tomatoes, serano chiles, sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar, turmeric, mustard seed, and ground cumin. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 25 minutes.

Spoon the corn relish into clean jars and seal. Will last for 4-6 weeks refrigerated.

If you would like to store your pickles outside of the refrigerator, sterilize canning jars before canning, and process the relish-filled jars in a hot water bath for 15 minutes after canning. I’ll add details about pressure canning these later. 

Makes 3-4 pints.
