Found on Canning Recipes Only (found on Pinterest)

This flavorful garden relish is made with cucumbers, green tomatoes, peppers, and onions.


8 bell peppers, red and green, ground or finely chopped in food processor

4 cups ground green tomatoes, or finely chopped in food processor

4 cups ground pickling cucumbers, or finely chopped in food processor

3 cups ground onions, or finely chopped in food processor

3-1/2 cups cider vinegar

2 cups sugar

2 tablespoons pickling salt

2 tablespoons mustard seeds

1 teaspoon celery seeds

2 tablespoons mixed pickling spices in a tied cheesecloth bag

Prepare the vegetables; drain off excess liquids.

Combine the vegetables in a large stainless steel or enamel-lined kettle. Stir in 1-3/4 cups of the vinegar. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Continue boiling, stirring frequently, for 30 mintues. Drain and discard liquids.

Add the remaining 1-3/4 cups vinegar, the sugar, salt, celery seeds, and mustard seeds. Add the cheesecloth bag with mixed pickling spices. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Fill hot, prepared jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Clean jar rims and fit with lids and rings. Process in a covered boiling-water bath canner for 10 minutes.

Turn off heat, remove the cover, and let jars stand in the hot water for 5 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool completely.

Makes 6 pints.
