Sweetcorn fritters with a Fermented Sweetcorn and Chilli Relish


I recently and actually quite randomly made a sweetcorn, chilli and mint wild soda. After drinking it i was left with the fermented chilli and sweetcorn kernels of which i couldn’t bare to throw away! so I developed this recipe instead. 

You can of course use fresh, tinned or frozen sweetcorn for convenience and it is just as delicious.
