A coworker shared this recipe with me!! It is fabulous!! Right now my house is screaming HOLIDAYS from the wonderful aroma of it simmering on top of the stove!! I made just a couple of changes and substitutions.
Thank you Bette!!
A good friend gave me this recipe many years ago after I munched down nearly a quart while visiting! I threw out ALL my other dill pickle recipes because THIS ONE is the best. Several years ago, it occurred to me to enter my pickles in the County Fair. So I did. Since I'm superintendent over in the Junior Foods & Nutrition Department, I don't get to watch the Open Class judging. So later in the day (after judging in both classes was over), I went to see how my pickles (and other canned goods) fared [pun intended!]. I couldn't find my jar of pickles. They weren't on any of the shelves, neither were they in with the "disqualified" items. Hmmm. Then I spied them! Not only did they have a big blue ribbon on them, but they also received Best of Show AND the canning award! What a thrill!!! There's nothing like winning at the fair--amongst all those good cooks--to feel validated as a successful home-canner. NOTE: I did NOT list an amount for the cucumbers since I've never measured how many pounds I use--sorry! SERVING SIZE is the number of ounces in a quart jar--to facilitate nutritional information.
I received a Blue Ribbon for this recipe in 1997 at the Fresno County Fair.
This goes very well, with ham. I also like to use it as a base for salad dressings! This recipe also uses 1 pkg of low sugar pectin (powdered type).
I found this recipe in the local Newspaper when I lived in California. I entered it in the local fair...and won First Place!!
We use this relish as you would a pickle relish...in fact we prefer it over pickle relish!
I got this years ago from the lady in our church who canned it. I've never made it but I've eaten lots of it! It's the best salsa I have ever had. Especially good with lime tortilla chips or on taco salad (recipe #102234).
This was my husband's grandmother's recipe. It is so good. Store-bought pickles don't even come close. This is a good recipe for anyone who would like to try pickling, but hasn't done it before. It's quite straight forward, not a lot of ingredients.
I was looking for a tomatillo salsa recipe for canning & couldn't find one that suited our Taste so, I came up this this one. Everyone that has tried it likes it. We have a lot of tomatillos in the garden, so I wanted a way to use them.
This is the best salsa recipe I've found so far and I've tried about a dozen. I got it from one of the local hospital cookbooks that are sold in my area. I changed it a bit and have been canning it for years. The reason I plant a garden is for this salsa. We would be lost without it. Hope you like it as much as we do. One of our members who is a food scientist took this salsa to work, tested the pH and found it measured under 4.0 (well within the safety limit for boiling water bath processing).
I have not tried this recipe, but have had pickled okra..both as pickles and in lieu of olives in a martini (that is suggested in the Magazine I got this recipe out of Cooking Light) I was thrilled when they served okra in my drink!! (at a Friends 'Martini' party once several years ago) This recipe says to refrigerate in airtight container for up to two weeks. I will save this recipe to make before one of our barbques this summer!
