The reason I like this recipe is that it does not make a huge amount. I am the only one in my family who likes corn relish so I don't want a whole lot sitting over the winter (I can only eat so much!) I usually use 5 to 6 ears of fresh corn but frozen corn can be substituted. This looks like a lot of ingredients but it comes together fast. This comes from Topp and Howard's "Small Batch Canning"
