Sweet Pickle Relish Recipe


By request, here's the Ball Blue Book recipe for Sweet Pickle Relish.

Sweet Pickle Relish

6 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
2 medium onions, peeled and chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup salt
3 cups sugar
2 cups cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. celery seed
1 Tbsp. mustard seed
I put the cucumbers, onions and peppers in chunks into my food processor and whirred them around until they were in small pieces, but you can also hand chop your vegetables.
Place vegetables in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and mix around. Cover with cold water and let stand 2 hours, or overnight.

(This helps to absorb liquid from cucumbers.)

Drain and press out excess liquid in a colander.
Combine sugar, vinegar, celery seed and mustard seed in a non-reactive large pot. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar.
Add drained vegetables and bring to boil again. Lower heat and simmer 10 minutes.
Pack into hot sterilized pint jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Place caps on and tighten. Place in hot water bath and process for 10 minutes.
Makes 4 pint jars.

**Note: I didn't have too many peppers, so you don't have to use red if you don't have them. I only had a couple of green and some banana peppers..I did a batch with and without the banana peppers in case it was too hot. I double recipes so I can can more at at a time.
