Recipe Information
This is the recipe that my grandma made. Old timey goodness from ages past. The Real Deal!

S. Chokel

Serves/Makes:8 pints

  • 9 large ears of corn
  • 1 quart (950 ml) cider vinegar (at least 5% acidity, Heinz is good)
  • 1 cup (225 ml) of sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt, use kosher if you can to prevent caking agents
  • 1-1/2 tbsp (20 ml) dry mustard
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) tumeric
  • 1 medium head of green cabbage
  • 2 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 red peppers
  • 2 green peppers
  • Cook corn in boiling water for 2 minutes.
  • Dip the corn into cold water and cut grains from the cob.
  • Chop the cabbage, onion and peppers into small pieces about the size of the corn kernels, and add to the corn.
  • Mix vinegar, sugar, salt, and spices and heat to boiling.
  • Add the corn and vegetables and boil until tender, about 20 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Pour into sterile jars and seal. (Check with your local home extension office for directions for this relatively low acid recipe for canning times and pressure).
