While taking a little backroads trip through southwest Michigan the past few days we saw blueberries and sweetcorn at every turn. Then while in South Haven we went to a little shop called, The Olive Cart. While there I tasted Blueberry White Balsamic Vinegar. From the blueberry fields, the corn fields and the vinegar came my inspiration for this relish. It could easily be served as a side dish as well as a relish, I served it over grilled whitefish.My husband said " I think you just put Michigan on a plate." It would accompany grilled pork or chicken beautifully.
