Blue Ribbon Corn Relish
- Remove husks and silks from corn; cut corn from cobs (do not scrape cobs). Measure 8 cups of corn. In an 8- to 10-quart stainless-steel, enamel, or nonstick heavy kettle or pot combine corn and the 2 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until corn is nearly tender; drain.
- In the same kettle, combine cooked corn, celery, red and green sweet pepper, and onion. Stir in vinegar, sugar, mustard, pickling salt, celery seeds, and turmeric. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Ladle hot relish into hot, clean half-pint or pint canning jars, leaving a 1/2-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims; adjust lids. Process filled jars in a boiling-water canner for 15 minutes (start timing when water returns to boil). Remove the jars from canner; cool on wire racks.
