Corn Relish - Weekend Recipe

No theme month of Salsa, Corn and Jelly would be complete without a Corn Relish.  This one is my favorite because it is easy and savory without being too sweet.  The peppers in green and red really make it very colorful.

Corn Relish 
8 ears corn, husked and cleaned
2 pounds tomatoes - peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped green bell peppers
3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup white sugar
2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon mustard seed

Cut the corn from the cobs. Scrape the cobs with a large spoon to remove remaining juices.

In a large saucepan, mix the corn kernels and juice, tomatoes, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, cucumber and onion.

In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cider vinegar, salt, celery seed and mustard seed. Pour into the saucepan over vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil, then simmer 1 hour.

Transfer the finished relish to sterile jars. Preserve by canning or refrigerate until serving.  Will keep about a month.
