My mom is allergic to everything! from horses and cats to wheat and strawberries, tomatoes, mustard, beef, lettuce, egg yolks. Anyways she cant have most relishes because they have mustard in them, and when you cant eat ketchup or mustard, food gets kinda boring.
Well I found a recipe she says everything in it was okay, so I tried it out. And so will everyone else, cause it made 17 pints and 6 half pints. Way too much. Especially considering I don't even like relish myself.
First of the vegetables
5 pounds onions
and five pounds of cucumber and 2 celery hearts
and 3 red and 3 green peppers and 1 head of cauliflower
Chop all vegetables up and put through food grinder. I used my slap chop, but by the end I was sure wishing it had a power button!
Put vegetables in a large bowl and sprinkle with 1 cup course salt and cover with water. Cover with saran and let sit on counter overnight.
In the morning, Drain water from veggies, squish to make sure all water is gone. Then in a large pot whisk together 5 cups vinegar, 3 1/2 cups water, 1 tablespoon tumeric, 2 cups flour and 6 cups sugar.
Heat to a boil and simmer 2-3 minutes.
Add vegetables and bring to a boil. I only could make half a recipe at a time, cause I just didn't have a big enough pot.
Ladle into jars, put lids on and put in boiling water caner and boil for 10 minutes.
Remove jars from Caner and be prepared for how much it makes!
