Corn Relish

Rancho Gordo Cooking Sides Recipe inspiration for Corn Relish seasoned to perfection with Rancho Gordo Flor de Sal

It's hard for me to pass a stack of fresh corn ears, especially when they're on sale. As much as I love fresh corn on the cob (with just lime juice and salt is my preference), I often have too many ears to eat.

Corn relish is a tasty, easy way to use up some of your ears. The relish can work as a salsa with chips or as a condiment for grilled meats. Or you can just eat it by the spoonful.

It seems a lot of super-sweet new corns trade real, hearty corn flavor for sweetness. Be sure and let your farmer or greengrocer know if you prefer a less sweet corn.
