Jalapeno Corn Relish, THM E, sugar-free

Sweet and tangy Jalapeno Corn Relish is just what you need to serve at your next gathering. It has the perfect pop between sweet and tangy. This relish is tasty served over fish tacos, corn bread, hot dogs, or any grilled main course.

Out great-grandmother’s love for sour things led them to pickle anything imaginable. From all kinds of veggies, fruits, even strips of water melon rind!

Just a tablespoon or two of this relish on a fish taco gives it just the sweet, crunchy, tangy kick to take it over the top! You can add more of the seeds from the jalapenos if you like more heat. This version is mild so that some of my family will eat it. I love making relishes with fresh garden produce in the summer to eat in the winter when the snow flies.

Since there is mostly vinegar added as liquid to this relish you can water-bath it safely. Corn, when it canned with only salt and water needs to be pressure canned. Relishes, with all the vinegar added can safely be water-bathed.

This basket of fresh garden produce is just gorgeous in color….and when mixed together in this relish is just pure deliciousness.

Here the veggies have been brought to a boil. The relish is now ready to be ladled into jars and water-bathed. Just look at that kettle full of color and flavor.

The water is just about at a boil. I keep the water boiling gently so that the brine does not cook out of the jars.

These jars of corn relish will cool on my counter for 24 hours. Then the rings will be removed and the seals checked. The jars will be washed and place on my basement shelves to be enjoyed this winter. I only make one batch of the is relish as we do enjoy cucumber relish, too. Corn is higher in carbs and we don’t eat a huge amount of it at one time.

I love to can and preserve food as you may know by now. Here are a few of my favorite items to can. Sweet Garlic Dill Pickles, Pickled Beets, Baked Beans, etc. When you preserve your own food you know exactly what you put in each jar.

Since I do not have quite as large a garden as I used too, I do need to buy some produce. I still love to can even with buying a few items.
