"Making special condiments is something of a summer ritual for my mother and me. Corn relish adds spice to otherwise plain chicken tenders or roast pork." -Nancy Smith Midgette, Gibsonville, NC
2 cups chopped Vidalia or other sweet onion
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cups cider vinegar
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 (4-ounce) jars diced pimiento, drained
4 cups fresh corn kernels (about 8 ears)
How to Make It
Place first 3 ingredients in a food processor, and pulse 5 times or until finely chopped.
Combine vinegar and the next 6 ingredients (through pimiento) in a large Dutch oven, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in onion mixture and corn; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
