Green Bean Mustard Relish

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Top Review by Julie Bs Hive

One of my PAC picks Spring 2007 I narrowed this down to 1/2 lb green beans and made just one pint as the beans in my supermarket were too wrinkled, rusted and just plain ugly to put up. We all loved this relish and I can't wait for the pickings to be good this summer. I know I'll be making up a few batches; I love "putting by" as the old folks say. Thanks, MEW, I'll be adding something new to my pantry this year.
