Fiesta Corn Relish

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

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"

I made two corn relishes last week and this was my favorite! Cumin adds a wonderful flavor. Love that the recipe makes a smaller amount. Didn't realize the first time I looked at the recipe that the yellow pepper was a hot pepper, was thinking yellow bell pepper, so I just added a couple of minced jalapenos instead. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
