This recipe is very old, over 40 years. I found this recipe in an old newspaper clipping in a book bought at a yard sale. I use it in deviled egg filling with horseradish also, macaroni, tuna, and potato salads, mix it with mustard to put on my corned beef. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have for the last 40 years.

    Now, in a large cooking pot, add washed veg mix, and add the spice mix. Mix well. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1 hour, stir often so it won't burn, (I use a heat diffuser) KEEP SIMMERING EVEN WHEN LADLING INTO JARS. Boil lids, sterilize jars and seals, keep hot. Pour hot veg mix into hot jars, seal fast. let cool, and enjoy your relish.
