Corn Relish Ingredients

  • Fresh corn – you can also use thawed frozen corn.
  • Chopped onion – white, yellow, or red onion all work great!
  • Yellow bell pepper – or choose your favorite bell pepper. I prefer the sweet ones instead of green bell pepper which is more bitter.
  • Roasted green chiles – you can use fresh, frozen, or canned green chiles!
  • Tomatoes – Meaty tomatoes like Romas are great for this recipe.
  • Granulated sugar
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Salt
  • Celery seed
  • Mustard seed

How to Make It

  • Mix: Place all of the ingredients in a large pot and stir.

  1. I love recipes like this one. I can’t wait to try it. I think one of the best parts about relishes is that that the longer they sit (not too long, ha ha) the better they taste.
