Corn Relish with Roasted Peppers
- ACTIVE: 40 MIN
- TOTAL TIME: 1 HR
- SERVINGS: Makes 4 pints
This fresh, jalapeño-spiked relish offers pure corn flavor without all the heavy seasonings that jarred versions usually have. Use it as a stand-in for fresh corn in succotash or chowder. It's awesome on hot dogs, too.
- 12 ears of corn, shucked
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 green bell pepper
- 4 jalapeños
- 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 Spanish onion, finely diced
- 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Ladle the corn relish into four 1-pint canning jars and refrigerate for up to 3 months.
