This sound fabulous, and I love the idea of pickling corn, because we have so much beautiful local corn here in the Lowcountry of SC! But I'm allergic to peppers. What could I substitute? Fennel? Diced cucumber or green tomato? Would a change in ingredients necessitate a change in the spices?

I think diced cucumber would be a good substitute as it pairs well with the recipe spices.

This looks really good, I steam my corn first and can it for my Farmer's Market--this looks so fresh!
