This recipe was exactly I've been looking for! Easy to cook, tasty, vegan and goes with many things such as bread, vegetables and meat. I made this relish for a bbq party, everybody found this to be very delicious. I used cider vinegar with raspberry flavor. Concidering comments above I reduced the fluid to 2/3. It worked perfectly. So thank you for the tasty easy recipe and useful comments.

I didn't like the taste of the vinegar. I would make it again with a lot less vinegar and then just use it up in one go. Nice but not amazing.

Really easy to make, and a great way to use up sweetcorn when you're sick of eating corn on the cob!

I made this to go with some sausages in hot dog rolls and it was yummy. Had problems buying mustard powder though- is this an ingredient that's dying out? Maybe I was just unlucky with the supermarkets (I tried our Waitrose + Asda but they'd stopped doing it). In place of powder, I put a dollop of english mustard sauce instead which seemed to work ok!
