Running a grocery store now means that we get the busted up fruits and veggies at the end of every day. Today’s invention:

1 ear roasted corn
7 cups peeled chopped tomatoes (like Roma #2’s!)
1 chopped Iberian Chile (spicy and sweet! substitute 2 jalapenos for heat, but nothing replaces the fruity sweetness of these)
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup white or cider vinegar
juice of 1/2 a lime
1 Tbsp kosher salt

Add all ingredients to medium saucepan, simmer for 20 minutes, and pack into jars. Preserve in water bath for 15 minutes. I ate some leftover from this batch over jasmine rice with cilantro, excellent! I plan on pulling out jars for little tastes of sun in February.

Tomorrow: we figure out what to do with 2 lbs of softy bruisy plums!
