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.

"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
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"
