Sweet Pickle Relish

*Makes 4 pints (though next time I’m gonna do half-pints)

  • 6-7 large unpeeled cucumbers (about 4 cups), diced
  • 2 medium green bell peppers (about 1 1/2 cups), diced
  • 2 heads celery (about 3 cups), diced
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 3 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 1 tsp mustard seed

Finely chop the veggies in a food processor for a couple of seconds, being careful not to grind them into a puree. Pour the veggies into a large bowl and add salt; cover with water and let stand for about 5 hours.

Drain well, pressing the mixture to remove all liquid.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil. Continue stirring until all of the sugar has dissolved. Add the vegetable mixture to the saucepan, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Pack into hot, sterilized jars leaving 1/2 inch head space. Process for 10 minutes in a water bath canner.

I love mixing some chicken or tuna with some mayo and homemade sweet pickle relish for a quick sandwich or cracker spread! Yummy!!
