I've been making this for thirty years. Discerned the ingredients of a couple of commercial brands and set out on my own.

I use this as a condiment, serving a couple of tablespoons to a serving.

How to Make Corn Relish -- An Original

Step-by-Step

  • 1Chop all the veggies except corn to size of corn. And place in Medium sized pot along with undrained corn.
  • 2Add all the other items and stir well. Slow simmer for 30 minutes and stir occasionally.
  • 3Should have a syrup consistency. If not drain off some of the liquid and mix 2 or 3 tablespoons of corn starch in 1/3 cup of cold water and stir well.
  • 4While relish is at a slow to rolling simmer add the corn starch mixture and stir well. Corn Starch has to come to a slow or rolling simmer in order to thicken.
  • 5Pack in pint jars fairly dry and discard excess liquid, or find a creative use for it. Will keep for up to 2 weeks in fridge.
  • 6Note: 1/2 cup of Honey or Molasses could be added if you have a Southern bent. Or add a dash of Tabasco Sauce for a bit of a bite. You could make a bigger batch and can this for shelf storage or gifts.
