      Don't let the long list of ingredients and instructions scare you. It isn't as labor intensive as it looks. I just opened the first jar and it is GREAT! Next year I will be making much more. Thanks for posting!

      This relish is very tasty, I'll never buy storebought relish again! I'll definitely double the batch next year.
