After being inspired at the taping of the culinary TV Show The Chew, I decided to make my own version of the Chow Chow they made that day. Corn is abundant right now, so it’s the perfect time of year for this! If you can it, it will stay good almost forever. If you don’t, it will stay good in your refrigerator for at least two weeks, if not a lot longer! Spicy, sweet, tart… it was like an explosion of goodness in my mouth.
Barb’s Corn Relish
7 cloves of garlic (more or less to taste)
2 medium green pepper (more or less depending on taste and what you have on hand)
1 large onion (ditto)
2 1/4 cups corn (ditto: I took mine right off the husk with a good kitchen knife)
1 1/2 packets Stevia (or sugar)
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup apple cider vinegar
Crushed red pepper, nutmeg and salt to taste (I put lots of each! )
Put peppers, garlic and onions roughly chopped in your food processor and process until of rough consistency but not liquid.
In a sauce pan, bring 1 1/2 cups water and 1 cup apple cider vinegar to a boil. Add crushed red pepper, nutmeg and salt. All the vegetable mixture and keep boiling for about 5 minutes.
We ate ours with barbecued pork chops; it was delicious…
