Easy recipe for my first pickle canning. I used 5 1/2 c cucumbers and only 1 1/2 c celery - everything else I kept the same. It smelled great going into the jars. However, it makes 6 1/2 pints, not 6 pints. With only 8.5 cups of veggies, I was wondering where the other 3.5 cups were coming from! Next time I'll double everything to get the expected volume. I chopped all the veggies in my non-electric Quick Chopper (like a Tupperware Quick Chef) and it was really fast & easy. Thanks for the recipe!
I doubled the recipe and left out the green pepper (my family can't eat them) and added the dill. Great relish that we have been adding to everything!
This is my first attempt to make relish. We are overrun by cucumbers from our garden so I thought this would be a great way to use them. It turned out really good. I accidently grabbed a zucchini and chopped it with the cucumbers. It worked fine so the next 2 batches I made I purposely added a little zucchini.
This relish recipe is wonderful. I did add and delete a few ingredents. Acualy I took what ever I had left in my garden and used the baise of this recipe. It worked great. I used cucumbers, sweet peppers, bell and bannana, onions, celery and a few hot peppers. Grind everything up in a food pressor. I diced the celery.I didn't have enough of vinegar and sugar mixture for all that I had processed so I mixed up a little more according to the the recipe ( 3 1/2 cups sugar to 2 cups vinegar), I heated my jars in the dishwasher. I would take out 2 at a time and fill, seal and return to the dish washer. I then ran my sealed jars through the dishwasher cycle under pots and pans. And walked away. Later I returned and removed my cleaned sealed relish all ready to store. The celery in this recipe is so good and crisp. My next batch I'm planning on makeing it a little hotter and adding more diced celery. Thank you DiB's. This was the relish recipe I had been looking for. Sheila
This is really good. I doubled the recipe and took the advice of another reviewer and reduced the syrup to half. Perfect amount of liquid in the relish. This is a keeper. Great recipe.
5 STARS....! Thank you for sharing this classic recipe, which is so diverse,,,,Hot dogs, deviled eggs, a nice kick to potato salad, or a macaroni salad, and so easy.! and there is nothing better then sharing, or receiving home canned goods...! Thank you again!!
I made this relish today, I doubled the cucumbers, used 3 1/2 cups sugar, 1 1/2 cups vinegar and added 1 Tabs. tumeric. It taste great! Well be making more as the cucumbers continue to produce. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
This relish is wonderful. I adjusted it a little to our taste. I added some mild sweet banana petters and cut back the sugar by 1/2 - 3/4 cup. HE is diabetic. Everyone that tasted it wanted a jar. Thanks for the receipe DiB's
this relish is good,me being an Indian chef,found it to be too sweet.To enhance it's sweet spice flavour.I'am gonna chop 4-5 grn chillies and add it to yhe relish.I think u should give jt atry as well.
Wonderful, similar to grocery store in taste except fresher, and better. No more high fructose corn syrup, or yellow #5 etc for me. This recipe will do. I'll will make again and again. I also used the dishwasher trick. Wow. How easy.
