Summer Corn Relish

Yield Makes 3 1/2 cups
This recipe makes a lot of corn relish. Use extra (if there is any!) as a chip dip or a topping for your quesadillas, burritos, or fish tacos. Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 4 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 9 ears)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 5 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

How to Make It

  1. Place first 8 ingredients in a Dutch oven, and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Add kosher salt and pepper.

  2. Cook, stirring often, about 4 to 5 minutes or until corn is glossy but still slightly crunchy. Remove from heat, add basil, and let cool. Chill in an airtight container until ready to serve.
