  1. Step 1

    Use a small serrated knife to cut down the side of the corn to release the kernels. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the capsicum, onion and celery, stirring, for 5 mins or until soft. Add the chilli, if using, and garlic and cook for 1 min or until aromatic.

  2. Step 2

    Add the salt, sugar, vinegar, turmeric and mustard powder and cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook for a further 5 mins. Add the corn and simmer for 15-20 mins or until the corn mixture thickens slightly.

  3. Step 3

    Combine the butter and cornflour in a bowl. Stir into the corn mixture and simmer for 5 mins or until relish thickens.

  4. Step 4

    Ladle relish into sterilised jars, leaving a 1cm gap at the top. Seal and set aside to cool.
