I will post the recipe but as I said just a minute ago I want to play around with it a little to perfect it. I had to add a little more sugar near the end as it was too sour but that's the joy of cooking

Yeah better late than never eh Our time clock is all to pot at the moment as we're on holiday and been staying up until the sun comes up lol! The relish was gorgeous but I still want to mess around a little with the recipe before I post it - damm perfectionists
thank you JJ!! i always make a well in my taters for the gravy.

i think you should try adding a small amount of that red chilie pepper to the relish to give it a kick.

Tonight, I had a gin and tonic followed by an appetizer of baked Nova Scotia oysters wrapped with prosciutto and oven-dried tomatoes, topped with spinach hollandaise and a glass of chardonnay. My entree was a seared duck breast cooked medium rare and a confit leg served with a green peppercorn demi glace and roasted onions and foie gras risotto and steamed broccoli and a glass of montepulciano.

SO had a dirty martini followed by a Sautéed Escargot & Shrimp With white wine, lemon, cream and garlic butter over spinach and puff pastry. For an entree she had a Wood-Grilled Filet Mignon on a grilled, marinated portabello mushroom with tomato-tarragon butter, sautéd spinach and fried onions with a glass of chardonnay.

For dessert I had an espresso and Strawberry Lemon Crepes
Filled with marscpone cheese and sliced strawberries. Served with a blackberry-honey coulis.

I made Mexican Stuffed Tri-Colored Peppers. I got a little heavy handed with the red pepper, definitely need to eat it with sour cream. Otherwise very tasty.

How right you are, VB! It was absolutely delicious! As my "sides" to go along with the corn DH grilled a pork tenderloin that I just seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic, then in the last minutes of cooking he basted it with a concoction I came up with - melted butter with a bit of ketchup, dry mustard, lemon juice and fresh herbs including basil, thyme, parsley, tarragon, and rosemary. It turned out great and was a wonderful compliment to the corn. Oh, and fresh snap peas, steamed. Everyone was quite satisfied!
