Corn Relish Recipe

I had all the ingredients for this growing in my garden so I decided to try a corn relish recipe I found in my Ball Blue Book. Since this is a pickled item it can be safely processed in a waterbath canner. Remember, usually corn or other vegetables need the pressure canner.

Prepare

Gather your canning supplies
Ingredients
  • 2 quarts cooked corn, cut off the cob
  • 1 quart chopped cabbage
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped sweet green peppers
  • 1 cup chopped sweet red peppers
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 T dry mustard
  • 1 T celery seed
  • 1 T mustard seed
  • 1 T salt
  • 1 T tumeric
  • 1 Quart vinegar
  • 1 cup water

Procedure

Start by getting the water in your canner heating and gather all canning supplies.

Chop all veggies and combine in a large pot. I love that this recipe has the actual measurements listed. Often I've seen recipes that have 1 small head of cabbage... well who says what is small????

Original Recipe calls for 1 to 2 cups of sugar. Not having made it before I split the difference and went with 1.5 You can adjust this as you like.

filled jars of corn relish

Pack into pint jars. What I do is fill each jar first with the solid ingredients, then go back and top them off with the liquid.

This way I don't get down to the last jar and end up with lots of liquid and not much solids.

Important tip!

Remember to try not to slop it all over like I did today. My counter now has pretty yellow blotches all over.

This is caused by either the dry mustard or the Turmeric... whichever one it doesn't really matter. All I know is..... it doesn't really add to the look of my kitchen, what do you think? (I've done this before... it wears off after a while)
