"A pickled relish is a cooked or pickled, coarsely or finely chopped vegetables (using what you have from cabbage to green tomatoes to zucchini just to have 4 quarts grated veggies before soaking) which is typically used as a condiment. I made this with a combination of home grown garden goodies. Served as a dipping sauce for breads or as a condiment to spread over the top of cornbread or top hot dogs and hamburgers, fresh grilled fish,chicken or mix with mixed with mayonnaise to make tartar sauce, and piccalilli can be mixed with mayonnaise or crème fraîche to make remoulade. Makes a great addition to a gift basket."

"Very good. I used mostly cucumbers as the veggies with some jalapenos (seeded), red and yellow peppers and onion."
"A friend gave me the recipe from your site, as my garden is well over planted, and I have much excess. As a I am new to farming, but not new to canning , I made some of this Chow-chow, last week, filling 24 QT jars, (Trippled the recipe) did samples of it on blackened chicken at the farmers market in Alden, NY, and I now have people calling every day for this Chow-Chow. It is wonderful. The only things that I used, that was diffrent, as I have an abundance of them, were snap peas, and yellow beans, which I cut into1/8-1/4" pieces, I also added Green tomato's as well., My entire garden is represented in that Quart Jar. I just love making it, and its so good too."
"Love this, I did strain the pickling spice out. I also used zucchini and yellow squash. I substituted anaheim peppers for the bells. I can't wait to eat this on some buttermilk cornbread."
"This is soooo good. I did make some slight changes. I used cabbage instead of zukes or squash and I put the pickling spices into cheesecloth (using a little more than the recipe called for) just because I cannot imagine biting into the hard chunks of cloves, peppercorns, etc. Removed before adding the veggies. I only got 4 pints and some for a bowl to eat right away, but it tastes fantastic."
"Wonderful recipe. I love the versatility of it because I can use what I have in my small garden. I don't have an over abundance of anything, much to my dismay, but I was able to come up with a combination that equaled 4 quarts (green tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, cucumber, zucchini, jalapenos, cayenne peppers, bell peppers, garlic, onion, carrots). I chopped everything in the food processor and let it sit overnight as one reviewer suggested. Great flavor and with a hint of spice from the jalapenos. Love it! Can't wait for my husband to taste it. My yield was 5 pints."
"I did add a couple of jalepenos to the mixture because I had some to use. The relish is wonderful, very easy to make and I will make it again. I used a food processer and chopped everything up very fine. I let the mixture stand overnight, rather than the 1 hour recommended."
"Super yummy! I grated 6 quarts of veggies and this made 4 1/2 pints. I subbed two chopped cucumbers for two of the bell peppers. Will definitely make again!!"
"This is a great way to end the garden. I used cucumbers and it is awesome. Thanks The Bacon's"
