Sweet Relish
From JoAnnia

When I was younger, about 20 something, a friend at work gave me this sweet relish recipe. She has passed on, but I still make the recipe. I am 75 years young. Don't know how old this recipe is, all my family likes it. Can be used in so many ways. Potato  salad, hot dogs, just so many to name.

Sweet Relish

6 lbs cucumbers [Do not peel]
4 cups onions
2 green peppers
1 red pepper
Grind and mix together with;
1/2 c canning salt
2 qts Boiling water.
Let stand for 1 hour.

Drain real well, then add the following,
1 tsp. mustard seed
1 tsp. tumeric
1 pint vinegar
5 cups sugar
1 Tbsp. corn starch
Boil 1/2 hour and seal hot in pint jars.
Makes around 6 pints.

  • "Good Morning!  I have visited your site several times, so it was only natural to search your files when my daughter, Jenni needed a "pickle product" recipe for her 4-H exhibit.

    She chose JoAnnia's Sweet Relish recipe.  It was easy for Jenni to follow, and the result was a delicious, dark green relish with red flecks.  The judge liked it too, because Jenni won the Champion ribbons for her division.  Her relish will travel to the Indiana State Fair for judging in August.

    I just wanted to thank you for posting this recipe, and let you know that it is now part of our family's Heritage too!  Cindy and Jenni"
  • "The 'Sweet Relish From JoAnnia' recipe was terrific.  I added 1 tsp of celery seed to the recipe and it is just as good as name brand relish. Thanks so much, Patricia"
