SWEET CORN RELISH/SALSA
• 3 ears corn, husks and silks removed
• Kosher salt
• 2/3 up white-wine vinegar, plus more if needed
• 1/4 cup light-brown sugar
• 2 tsp mustard seeds
• 2 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 cup diced sweet onion, such as Vidalia
• 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
• 1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, diced (2/3 cup)
• 1 jalapeño or serrano pepper (ribs and seeds removed for less heat, if desired), minced
Cook corn in a large pot of generously salted boiling water until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain; let cool completely. Strip kernels from cobs with a sharp knife.
Meanwhile, combine vinegar, 1/3 cup water, brown sugar, mustard and coriander seeds,turmeric and 1 teaspoon salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Stir in onion, and bell pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in corn kernels and jalapeño; simmer 1 minute more. Carefully transfer mixture to a 4-cup-capacity or two 2-cup-capacity jars. Top with more vinegar, if necessary. (Liquid should fully submerge corn mixture and reach about 1/2 inch from top.) Let cool completely, then cover and refrigerate until ready to use, up to 1 month
The Best Peach Cobbler
Filling: 5–6 large fresh yellow peaches, sliced and 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup salted butter, melted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup turbinado sugar (optional,but do it...it’s crunchy)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Smear the bottom of 9×13 pan with a little bit of butter. Add peaches and sugar, and mix directly in the pan.
- Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, flour, baking powder, and salt until a cookie-dough-like batter forms.
- Place scoops of the mixture over the top of the peaches. Spread with a spoon or with your fingers – no need for perfection here.
- Bake for 30 minutes. At this point it should be juicy and bubbly around the sides – if not, see notes.
- Sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar. Bake another 10 minutes and then finish with a few minutes under the broiler for a few minutes to get it golden brown and slightly crunchy on top.
- To get a thick saucy peach base, let it stand for 20-30 minutes before serving with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
