DIRECTIONS

  • Grind and drain the vegetables. Put them in a large bowl.
  • Add 1/2 cup of pickling salt to the 1/2 gallon of boiling water and pour the whole mixture over the vegetables. Let stand covered on the counter over night.
  • Sterilize your bottles, lids and utensils.
  • In a large pot mix the 4 cups of sugar, turmeric, mustard seed and celery seed with a whisk until well mixed, then add the 3 cups of cider vinegar. Add the drained vegetables and bring to a boil.
  • In a separate bowl, sift the cornstarch and remaining 2 cups of sugar until well combined. Add the remaining 2 cups of cider vinegar. Whisk until the dry mix is dissolved.
  • Gently add and stir the cornstarch mixture into the vegetable mixture and cook for 20 minutes to thicken.
  • Ladle the hot relish into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace and seal. While my family has always said it's not necessary, I hot water bath them for 10 minutes as an added precaution.
