Sue's Fermented Sweet Corn Relish

It's sweet corn season and I love creating fermented versions of traditional recipes! Chia seeds have a gelatin-like quality and give this recipe it's traditional consistency. See our previous post for making whey.

Sue's Fermented Sweet Corn Relish

3 cups fresh (raw) corn kernels

1/2 cup diced red onion

1/4 cup diced green pepper

1/4 cup diced red pepper

1 tablespoon Chia seed

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

1 teaspoon celery seed

1/4 cup whey

1/3 cup raw honey

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir well to combine. Divide mixture into two quart-sized jars allowing room for expansion during fermentation. Place lid on jars. Stir relish twice daily. Ferment time: 2 to 3 days. Place in refrigerator where relish can be stored for 2 to 3 weeks.

Happy Fermenting!
