  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped



    Related to the onion (as opposed to being a younger version of it), shallots grow in clusters at…

  • 200 - 250g fresh corn (about 2 cobs)
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 75ml cider vinegar
  • 25g caster sugar
  • ½ tsp dry mustard powder



    A condiment made by mixing the ground seeds of the mustard plant with a combination of…

  • handful coriander leaves, finely chopped (optional)


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Tip in the shallot and cook for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the remaining ingredients (except the coriander) with ½ tsp salt.

  2. Bring to the boil, then cook for 10 mins until the corn is golden and the sauce coats the kernels. Add the coriander, if using, and leave to cool. Serve with hot dogs, burgers or pork chops.

And how long will it last? A relish was always made to keep summer produce until the winter months. How do you keep this? If it won't keep it is not technically a relish but an accompaniement.

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!

If stored in sterilised jars how long will this last?
