    Melt spread in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add corn and milk to pan; season. Cover, simmer for 12 minutes or until corn is tender. Reserve ¼ cup (60ml) of the liquid; drain corn mixture. Transfer corn and reserved liquid to a small food processor; process until pureed. Transfer to a medium bowl, stir in rind; cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, half-fill a large shallow frying pan with water; bring to the boil. Break 1 egg into a cup, then slide into pan; repeat with remaining egg. When both eggs are in the pan, allow water to return to the boil. Cover pan, turn off heat; stand for 4 minutes or until a light film of egg white sets over yolks. Using a slotted spoon remove eggs, one at a time, from pan; drain on kitchen paper.

    Accompany each serving of corn with a poached egg, relish and one slice of toast.


You will need about 2 jalapeños (60g). If you can’t find fresh, use bottled, chopped jalapeños. The relish is also great served with barbecued beef, chicken or lamb.
