Tina's notes for this recipe:
Love to eat this with pinto beans and corn bread. I can eat a whole jar by itself

This is a really fresh-tasting relish!. Thinking about adding some hot peppers next time... What do y'all think?


Dice vegetables and mix with salt. Let stand at least 1 hour
Drain well ... squeeze out juice
Mix vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, celery seed, and dry mustard in a large pot and bring to a boil.
Add vegetables and bring to a boil. Pour in hot jars and seal. Water bathe for 15 minutes. I put mine in jelly jars because I eat a jar all by myself. This recipe should make about 6 pint jars. Sometimes I have a bit that will not fit into the jars... it does not go to waste.

I have added jalape├▒o peppers to my relish in years past... It is good either way! :-)
