Sweet Corn Relish is really easy to put together. You will never use store-bought again once you make it yourself! The relish comes together with tomatoes, green peppers and red onions (plus the wonderful spices). Just one bite of this sweet corn relish and you will want to put it on every thing all summer long!

What to serve with Sweet Corn Relish? Truly there are endless ways to enjoy this delicious condiment. If you are a hot dog eater, I suppose that is truly summer way (I’m not a hot dog eater!!). Burgers! Yes, just perfect topped on a burger (if you’re gluten-free…ditch the buns, and enjoy all the sides with your burger and the relish!).

Yield: You'll get 1 quart jar, or divide between 2 1-pint jars – Storage: This will be stored in the refrigerator. If you would like to store on shelf, follow USDA canning instructions. – Make ahead: Make the relish at least 1 day ahead for the best flavor.


Can I make this relish be served with some proteins?  Yes! Any grilled protein would work great (grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon, steak).
