Canning Pickle Relish

My husband and I have been making pickle relish for years.  We only use his Grandma’s recipe.

Why Grandma’s recipe?  Well, it tastes so much better than the store bought relish.

I grew up not liking relish – any of them.  I did not like the taste at all.

I also did not like pickles.

Enter Grandma’s Pickle Relish

I was willing to support my husband in making his Grandma’s Pickle Relish.  I said I would help him make it.  I reserved the right to taste and not like it.

We made it and only changed one thing in the recipe:  We increased the cucumbers and onions to compensate for not including the bell peppers listed in the recipe.  (I cannot eat nightshades and bell peppers are in the nightshade family.)

Canning plans for rest of 2015

I am planning to get some pickle relish canned next month when my aunt is in town.  I’m not sure how much we will be canning, though.

What have you canned this year?

    1. Elise, canning is cool,isn’t it?! My aunt and I keep selecting a new recipe to make. It keeps it fun! ~Adrienne

        1. Elise, I agree! It is fun to change out the ingredients (as long as the changes are allowed in the Ball Bluebook so the canning process is not messed up). People who do not eat relish eat ours! 😀 ~Adrienne
