Canning Adventures#2 - Sweet N Hot Corn Relish!

The salsa was so easy, I didn't wait long to try my next canning adventure. Here's the story with this one. When we went to my parents' house for my birthday, my aunt brought this really tasty corn relish, and we ate it with crackers, like dip. It was so good, I decided I needed to try to figure out how to make it. I found a recipe online, and with a few additions I think it turned out really good. It has frozen corn, apple cider vinegar, red and green bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, sugar, turmeric and mustard powder in it.

I didn't get many pictures of this one because I did most of it before my husband got home from work. Here it is in the pan:

The lids and rings are hot and the water in the canning pot is ready to go!

And here are the pretty jars all processed and cooling off. Really, aren't they pretty? I may be weird, but I think the food in jars is pretty. I should decorate with them!

Yes, those lovely yellow jars of corn relish would look smashing in your yellow duck bathroom!!! (something about Zoey's eyes made me post this in her blog too...she could be an alien!)
