Corn Relish

From the Canadian Living Test Kitchen (I trust their recipes)…

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 5 cups corn kernels
  • 1 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 cup diced sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup diced sweet green pepper

Preparation:

In large Dutch oven or saucepan, bring vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard, celery seeds, turmeric and hot pepper sauce to boil. Stir in corn, onions and celery; reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until softened, about 20 minutes.

Whisk flour with 3 tbsp (45 mL) cold water; whisk into pan. Add red and green peppers; bring to boil and cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 5 minutes.

Fill hot 1-cup (250 mL) canning jars, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) headspace. Cover with prepared lids. Screw on bands until resistance is met; increase to fingertip tight. Boil in boiling water canner for 10 minutes.
