Corn Relish

Dave T.


I had to task my tiny brain for what to post as my 50th recipe, well this are it!!!!! I love this stuff, it's a fantastic side dish and serves well on a picnic!!! Served cold. I got the recipe from my friends George and David Jarroll who's momma owned the Country Road Inn, near Drennen (Summersville) WV. All the credit for it goes to her. She was a first generation American who's mother came from Italy. "Momma Jarroll" as she became known, opened the Country Road Inn in 1972. Sadly she has passed away and the Inn has closed. Please make this, and enjoy, momma would love for you too.
