Blue Ribbon Recipe

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


8 c
diced squash
3 c
diced sweet peppers
2 c
diced onions
1 Tbsp
3 c
1 Tbsp
white mustard seed
1 Tbsp
celery seed
1/2 tsp
dry mustard
2 1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

You can eat it as soon as it is made... If when I fill my jars there is not enough in the pot to make another jar.. I eat it. As far as how long it sits in the jars after canned If I want one I open it. I can eat a jar by itself. Let me know it you like it.

Do you need to let it sit a while before using? I do a lot of canning and I have a recipe that canned sweet dills pickles and it tasted better after it had sat a while after I canned it, then just opening it up after it was cold from fridge. I am definitely going to try this one. Thanks!
