Yellow Squash and Corn Relish Canning Recipe


I got this wonderful recipe from Lillian’s Cupboard here at WordPress.  She has cut down the recipe so you can make a small batch from vegetables that you can buy at a farmers market.  I quadrupled it because I had so many yellow squash from my CSA boxes the last few weeks.  Our growing season for CSA is in the winter here in South Florida and Saturday was the last box.  My freezer was full and I didn’t want to waste the squash.  I enjoy Lillian’s blog and knew she had this recipe for corn relish.  The local grocery had corn on the cob on sale so I bough a half a dozen to use for this.   So I only changed one thing in the recipe by adding some chopped celery.  I had extra of that from my box also to use up.  I ended up with a little extra that did not fit in a jar and saved it in the refrigerator for a week.  It taste wonderful.  Just perfect to add to a meal as a condiment.  I can see why she won so many ribbons for her pickling and relish recipes.

    How wonderful that you made this relish and served it in that beautiful dish. Thank you for the link. I have a feeling even the big batch isn’t going to last too long.

      I ended up with six pints. I made another one of the your relishes. I haven’t photographed it yet. There was no extra, All of it went into the jars. When I open a jar I will post it. I am sure it is yummy too.

      I have 2 of those bowels. One is a large one. I found them at different thrift shops. The pattern is known as Katy Blue Lacey Edge glass by Imperial Glass Co. I have the clear glass that people aren’t interested in like the blue. I have a collection of EAPG and some depression glass that is all clear glass. I like the really elaborate designs. I started collecting it as a little girl at rummage sales. My mother thought I was nuts. .I would spend my quarter or fifty cent piece on a piece of glass that would sit in my room to look at. I have a banana stand that has a lacey edge that I have never been able to ID. There was tons of clear glass that was made in EAPG that came from very small shops. So most of it don’t have much value just pretty to look at.

        I love some of the old dishes. They’re beautiful–and the monetary value of them somehow seems unimportant. šŸ™‚

    It is fun to find something that is pretty when you are just looking around with nothing in mind. It is also nice to have been given dishes from relatives. I enjoyed the diary where your grandmother calls what she broke of her mother’s a old relic. .
