Corn Relish Custard

I have had this recipe so long I don’t know where it came from. After seeing a similar idea in Myrna's canning book, I adapted it to use my home canned corn relish, but any kind of whole kernel corn, well-drained, works. I add a half-pint of drained, home canned ham chunks to this for a main dish. This isn’t a scalloped corn dish with creamed corn and crackers, but true custard. If you use 10 ounce individual dishes, cut the baking time to 30 minutes or so.
For a side dish, bake in the casserole dish and cut in squares; as a side dish it can serve 6. It’s good with pork chops and a salad. I serve this as a main dish with a nice chopped salad and fruit for dessert, because it’s pretty caloric. The portions are generous.  The corn relish recipe is HERE.

  1. Corn Relish is so delicious, why wouldn't corn relish custard? Butter, cream- what's not to love?

    Yum!
