Sweet Pickle Relish
This recipe originally came from a web site called heritage recipes and then I tweeked it to my taste. This is going to be very similiar to store bought pickle relish.
run all these veges thru a grinder with the blade that has the largest holes
10lbs cucumbers (do not peel but do cut the big ones in half and remove the big seeds)
2 green bell peppers
1 large red bell pepper
1 large or 2 small onions
Put 2 qts of water in a large pot and 1 cup of canning salt , bring this mixture to a boil. Then add the ground veges to the pot. Cover and let sit for about 2 hours
After soaking then drain the mixture the best that you can by ladling it into a strainer and allow the juice to drip out
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp tumeric
2 cups apple cider vinegar
5 cups sugar
1 TBS corn starch
Stir well and heat to boiling. Allow the mixture to boil for 30 minutes while stirring freqently to avoid scorching.
Wipe the rims of the jars and place clean sterilized lids on them with rings
The process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes
Enjoy the relish and also enjoy not giving your money to the big grocery store corporations.....
