Corn Chow-Chow

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1/4 cup)
This mustard-laced relish gets better the longer it sits. It pairs well with beans, such as our Savory Soup Beans, or peas, black-eyed peas, or crowder peas. Cane syrup is golden, thick, and very sweet; use dark corn syrup in its place if you can't find it.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon cane syrup
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
