Grandma's Pepper Relish

Jean Fisher


This recipe calls for a old time food chopper. In fact I use the very one that was my Grandmothers.
This relish is great along side a roast beef & vegetable meal. Also on top of a hot dog.
In my recipe, I am also using yellow peppers. Either way the relish turns out great. Just an added bit of color.
