This is a tangy relish that I hadn't made for awhile- just made a batch and remembered how good it is! From an old Canadian Living.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In food processor or food chopper with coarse blade, chop vegetables. I find the best way to do this is to coarsley chop the vegetables before putting in the processor, and then pulsing briefly- you want small chunks, not puree.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and add 2 1/2°C cold water. Let stand for 1 hour and drain well.
  3. In large saucepan combine sugar, flour and spices; gradually stir in vineagr and water.
  4. Add drained vegetables and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 30-60 minutes, stirring often. Pack into hot sterilized jars leaving 1/8 inch headspace.
  5. Seal immediately, label and store in cool, dry, dark place.
