I don't know about you, but for me, nothing beats the taste of a nice homemade relish. In my family history there was a corn relish that we used to make with corn, peppers and all the other main ingredients grown on our farm in rural Saskatchewan. As an adult, when I first saw a recipe for corn relish it instantly transformed me back to the family farm and the time when I was just a little girl. I always had a fondness for corn relish and I knew I had to find a way to capture those memories with hopes of them triggering happy memories for my customers. So I went out and gathered my ingredients. I had just missed the Similkameen Valley corn crop so I had to substitute frozen corn in my recipe but I did get red and orange bell peppers from Keremeos into the mix. My hubby actually helped me in the JamBusters! kitchen with the first batch. He had never seen what it takes for me to create one of my branded products so I was happy to have him around. He was particularly helpful when I needed someone to stir the mixture as it was heating up on the oven. When the product was processed I had a little left over so we tried it. My hubby was very impressed and has used it many times already as a condiment in sandwiches. The name of it, which I have called Let's Get Corny Relish, hit me the following morning when we were trying to come up with names.

My name is Brenda and I like to create things that can be sealed in a jar. I try to find unique and unusual recipes that can be for jams, jellies, relishes, pickles, hot sauces and any other type of preserve. I also like to put dried items in jars such as soups, drink and cake mixes. I hope that you find my website and the blog I've added to it interesting. Thank you for visiting with me!
