Sweet Pickle Relish

Laura Geese


I found this recipe on the blog of "New Life On A Homestead" that I just HAD to try! We love relish and I use it for more than just on hot dogs. It is especially wonderful in my brown sugar sloppy joes or in chicken or tuna salad! Mmmm!

How to Make Sweet Pickle Relish


  • 1In a food processor, finely chop the cucumbers, peppers, onion, and celery, being careful not to grind them into puree.
  • 2Pour the veggies into a large bowl and add your salt. Cover with water and let stand out of the way for about 5 hours.
  • 3After you have let them sit for the desired time, drain well, pressing the mixture to remove all the liquid. This part takes a little while, but be patient....you will love the results!
  • 4Combine the remaining ingredients in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil. Be careful not to take to deep a breath over the pot, the vinegar smell will get strong for a little bit.
  • 5Continue stirring until all of the sugar has dissolved. Add the vegetable mixture to the saucepan, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • 6Pack into hot, sterilized jars leaving 1/2 inch head space, always remembering to clean the rim of each jar to remove any relish that may prevent the jars from sealing properly. Process in a water bath canner for 10 minutes.
