    Lucky pigs indeed! I relish your relish …sorry I couldn’t resist. Seriously, I can’t wait to make a batch!

    Thank you for the reminder that it’s corn relish time! Though I have the unfortunate tendency to want to treat it as a side dish instead of a condiment.

    Thanks for the, a-hem, clarification… and for the laugh.

    PS. Still like the beard. How is the mouth?

      Thanks Jacqui, the beard may reappear as I’m not liking the double chin. (Gettin’ old ain’t pretty.) As for the mouth, the tooth was pulled after a failed root canal. It sure costs a lot to leave a hole in your jaw. It’s healed, now I’m pondering an implant. Cost about the same as a two-week European vacation, which sounds like a lot more fun, too. Thanks for asking.

        I got an implant, wth a sinus lift, last year. All is well, but do sometimes wonder if it was worth the money. I’m 41 and the teeth on either side were solid, so I guess an implant was the best option, but after getting the tooth out and having no tooth in the spot for 6 months, I kind of got used to it and it wasn’t a big deal. You have a bigger and better smile than I do though, so a gap might be more noticed.

    I’m a fan of Trader Joe’s tomatoeless corn salsa which reminds me of the corn relish I used to eat growing up, and which I keep meaning to find a recipe for. Only TJ’s has coriander seed in it. This year I will make Trader Tom’s corn relish instead, slip in some coriander seeds, and eat local!!! Thanks!

      I’ll have to check this TJ offering out and maybe do a little comparison and recipe tweaking.

    Looking forward to trying this. Do you grow corn? Too cold where I live in MT for corn. I do get plenty of cucumbers from my greenhouse, are you going to share your recipe for sweet-sour pickles?

      Hi Elizabeth, I do grow corn, but this year, I may take a break as it’s a heavy feeder and challenge to grow here too. The cool maritime climate is not best place for such a sun seeking grain. And yes, I will share the pickle recipe in the next week or so. What variety of cucumbers do you grow?

        I look forward to the pickle recipe. Socrates works great in my greenhouse, but is not a pickler, I train them up a string. This year I’m also trying Harmonie, which is a pickler, and might try a couple plants of Poona Kheera and Boothby’s Blonde. I always have many more cucumbers than I can eat, the Socrates produces so many, so fast!

    My problem is any fresh corn and there’s none left to preserve. I can make a “pig” of myself ;) I wonder if it would work with frozen?

      Perri, I’ve made this using frozen corn and it was really good. Not quite the sweet fresh corn taste, but still worth making. Say about a pound and half of frozen corn works with this recipe.

    thanks so much for the recipe. Our farmers’ market is a great source for field corn (trucker’s favorite) or sweet corn varieties (silver queen or peaches and cream) so I will have fun this summer trying both types. Have you tried Texas Caviar? YUM!!! great beer drinking party dip made with corn/beans and hot Rotel. As us southerns say..you will slap yo momma it is so good!! LOL

      Janet, I’m not familiar with Texas Caviar, but that is about to change. A good old sloppy, drippy dip to plop a corn chip sounds like a snack I can wear as well and eat up! Thanks!
