Prep Time:
Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 12 ears of corn, shucked
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 4 jalapeño peppers
  • 1.5 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1.5 cup sugar
  • 1 Spanish onion, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp whole-grain mustard
  • salt

Directions

1. Fill a large bowl with ice water. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the corn until the kernels become slightly translucent, about 3 minutes. Transfer the corn to the ice water; let cool. Drain the corn and pat dry. Cut off the kernels.

2. Roast the bell peppers and jalapeños over a gas flame, turning, until charred all over, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, cover and let cool slightly. Peel, stem and seed the peppers and jalapeños. Cut the bell peppers into 1/2-inch dice and the jalapeños into 1/4-inch dice.

3. In an enameled cast-iron casserole, combine the vinegar and sugar and bring to a boil, stirring. Add the corn, peppers, jalapeños, onion and mustard and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and let cool.

4. Ladle the corn relish into four 1-pint canning jars and refrigerate for up to 3 months.
