4 ears corn
2 bell peppers, green or red, seeded and diced
2 celery stalks, finely sliced
1 red chile, seeded and sliced
1 onion, peeled and sliced
2 cups white wine vinegar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
Strip kernels from corn cobs using a sharp knife. Blanch them in a saucepan of boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain well. Put corn and other -ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and stir. Simmer gently, stirring, for 15 to 20 minutes.
Check seasoning, then spoon into jars and refrigerate.
Note: The relish should be a spoonable consistency and wetter than a chutney.
