Made this yesterday and it is DELICIOUS! Next time will cut the celery amount in half...a little too dominating for my taste...but it is still an excellent relish! I got exactly 5 pints out of it.

I found that the celery completely overwhelmed the other ingredients, making the relish very unpleasant for someone who really doesn't like celery very much! I'll use this as a base for experimenting with recipes that leave it out, if not altogether, then to a considerable degree - so thanks for that!

Very nice flavor. Tastes like something my mom made when I was little. I noticed another reviewer added some corn starch to thicken hers but I think this thickens as it sets awhile. We quadrupled the batch and it was pretty much an all day project, even with 3 grandkids and my daughter helping. Thanks for posting!

Excellent relish! I had a bumper crop of cucumbers this year and this put them to excellent use. Thank you so very much for posting it here.

Great relish! I used fresh cucumbers and peppers from my garden. I might cut back on the sugar a little next time. It was pretty sweet!

The recipe I have also uses shredded cabbage. This type of relish is also good on its own with a spoonful served alongside pork chops or chicken.

This was a very good recipe. Very tasty. I added only one thing. At the very end just before I was ready to pour it into the jars, I realized that it was too runny. I took about 1/2 cup of the liquid off and dissolved 2 tablespoons of corn starch in the liquid and poured it back into the rest of the hot relish brew while stirring rapidly. I brought it back to a boil and it thickened nicely. I like my relish kind of goopy. It has great flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
