    Donna Matthews's Note:

    After much experimentation with ingredients and ratios, this is my favorite sweet pickle relish. I usually can it when the burpless cukes from the garden get away from me.

      This is a very good recipe. When you make it, cut the sugar and vinegar in half. Then you will not have leftover juice. I also cut the sugar down by 1/2 cup and the end result was quite tasty. After I soaked the veg with the salt water I drained, washed it well and then put it in my cloth bag I use for jelly juice to squeeze out all the juice. Worked quite nicely. I also made a double batch with a single batch of the juice and seeds and it turned out very good. Donna should be commended for the basic recipe. I will keep it to use each year from now on!!

      This had the best flavor! Perfect! I doubled the recipe and did have quite a bit of leftover juice. I cannot bear to throw it away, it is too good. I will probably do as the first reviewer did and not double the vinegar and sugar mixture next time. There should still be plenty of liquid for the doubled amount of vegetables. I ended up with about 5 1/2 pints with the doubled recipe. This is my relish recipe from now on. I am on the hunt for a sweet pickle recipe using the same or similar ingredients to get this flavor. Donna, do you have one? Thank you for this recipe.

      I made this today with the following changes and it is scrumptious. Instead of 2 cups vinegar, 1 cup was used. Instead of 3-1/2 cups of sugar, 1-3/4 cup of Splenda/sucralose was used and instead of the celery/mustard seeds, 2 T of pickling spices were used. This was my first attempt at any kind of relish. I ate it warm on crackers - very good! Can't wait until I can put it in some tuna!
