Sweet Corn Relish

  • Yield: 6 1/2 pints


  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 very large sweet onion, such as a Wadmalaw or Vidalia, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh chili peppers, such as jalapeno
  • 3 cups white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 6 cups sweet corn kernels (from about 12 ears)


  • Put everything but the mustard, turmeric, and corn in a nonreactive pot and simmer for about 5 minutes. Put the mustard and turmeric in a small bowl or teacup and mix together with some of the hot liquid from the pot, then add the mixture to the pot along with the corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for another 5 minutes. Pack the mixture into 6 (1/2 pint) sterilized jars, seal, and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Serve this condiment with poultry, beans or rice.
