Corn Relish

The corn at my farmers market this summer has been outstanding and this is another great way to use this beautiful vegetable.




In a saucepan, bring the vinegar and sugar to a boil, stirring often to dissolve the sugar.  Simmer for 10 minutes, until mixture is reduced to 3/4 cup.  Reserve liquid in a bowl.  Heat the olive oil in the saucepan over medium heat.  Add the onion, jalapeño, paprika, turmeric and salt.  Cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes, until the jalapeño softens.   Add the corn and cook 3 minutes longer.  Add the vinegar mixture and the basil to the corn and simmer for 5 minutes.  Refrigerate for 20 minutes.  Remove from fridge, add the garlic oil and mix well.
