Old-Fashioned Corn Relish

This was the first “country” recipe I received after moving away from the city—a new neighbor shared it. It’s wonderful made with garden-fresh ingredients and tasty served with your favorite meat. —Jean Peterson, Mulliken, Michigan

    I made this recipe last week. Got four and 1/2 12 oz Ball Jars full. Absolutely Delicious!. I did add a tablespoon of Cinnamun and a half cup of sugar. Everybody that has tried it (I hand it out to others) has raved about it. I make pickles, stuffed mushrooms, stuffed quahogs and now this is my fourth recipe, Corn Relish!! Its also quick and easy.

    This is pretty good, except a bit too sweet for us. Going to cut down on the sugar next time!

    this is really, really good. I made a batch about 3 weeks ago and it's already almost gone. Great on burgers and hot dogs--my husband likes to eat it as is, just by itself!
