Title says hot dog relish, but we use it on anything and in alot of recipes for added flavor...it's like my 'secret' weapon!

Use in potato or macaroni salad dressing, ham bbqs, sloppy joes, baked beans...yummmmm, gives just that extra layer of flavor but nobody seems to be able to figure what makes it that good!

We make this every year and it's always a double batch...

How to Make MOM'S HOMEMADE SWEET HOT DOG RELISH

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash and cut vegetables in large chunks. Old method uses a hand grinder, but I do it now in my KA food processor. Grind all ingredients and place in a large stainless steel kettle. Add 1/2 cup table salt; cover and let stand overnight. Then, rinse well in strainer/colander. Return to kettle.
  2. Combine all syrup ingredients in glass or stainless steel bowl, then add to rinsed vegetables in kettle. Heat to almost boiling, then let simmer 3 minutes.
  3. Wash pint jars in hot, soapy water to sterilize. Boil lids & rings in hot water. Put relish into hot sterile jars, leave about 1" headspace and wipe rims well. Place lids and rings on, making sure they are tightly sealed. Set on rack or towels, let cool. As they seal, you will hear lids popping. Store in cool place.
  4. We always at least double this recipe, sometimes triple it if all vegetables are available. Can also put in quart jars, if desired.
