  • Does anyone have a good recipe for canning pickle relish?
  • do you mean a green cucumber relish?...such as for burgers and things?

    if that's what you're looking for, i can post the recipe

  • Hi! Actually I should have put I'm looking for a dill pepper relish. We have ended up with tons of sweet green and bananna peppers, and I don't know what to do with them. Thanks,
  • Carol, I would love to have the pickle relish recipe. I have tried for years to find one we like, but keep coming up with failures. That's too much time and effort wasted so I've quit, but I'd like to give yours a try.

  • Sweet Pickle Relish Recipe
    I have a recipe for a tasty Sweet Pickle Relish- I think I got it from the Ball Blue Book: Guide to Home Canning, Freezing and Dehydration.
    1 Qt. chopped cucumbers (about 4 medium sized)
    2 cup chopped onions (about 2 medium sized)
    1 cup EACH chopped green AND red pepper
    1/4 cup canning salt
    3 1/2 cups sugar
    1 Tbsp celery seed
    1 Tbsp mustard seed
    2 cup cider vinegar
    Combine cucumbers, peppers and onions in a large bowl; sprinkle with salt and cover with cold water. Let stand 2 hours. Combine sugar, spices and vinegar in large saucepot. Bring to boil. Add drained vegetables; simmer 10 minutes. Pack hot relish into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust 2 piece caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water canner. Yields about 8 half pints.

    My family loves it- I should've made more. I don't know that I've ever come across a recipe for Dill Pickle Relish, though.

    Have you tried searchingthe web for it?
    Happy Canning!

  • Pepper Onion Relish
    You could try this website http://www.recipesource.com/misc/can...0/rec0039.html
    I typed "Banana" peppers into my search engine to find recipes- I guess they are also called "Hungarian" peppers.

    I also found a recipe in the Ball Blue Book for "Pickled Peppers" (it doesn't specifiy sweet green pepper, but I'm sure you could substitue the them in).

    4 qts long red, green or yellow peppers (Hungarian, Banana or other varieties)
    1 1/2 cups canning salt
    4 qts plus 2 cups water, divided
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 Tbsp prepared horseradish
    2 cloves garlic
    10 cups vinegar

    Cut two small slits in each pepper. Dissolve salt in 4 quarts water. Pour salt water mixture over peppers and let stand 12-18 hours in a cool place. Drain; rinse and drain thoroughly. Combine 2 cups water and remaining ingredients in a large saucepot. Simmer 15 minutes. Remove garlic cloves. Bring pickling liquid to a boil. Pack peppers into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Ladle hot liquid over peppers, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust two-piece caps. Process half-pints and pints 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield: about 16 half-pints or 8 pints.

    I hope this helps: we wouldn't want all those peppers to go to waste!! Good luck!

    Michelle, Thanks, I am glad to get your recipe. I just thought that because you can buy it at the grocer's that I should be able to find a pepper relish recipe that used just dill instead of the sweet kind. I didn't realize this would be so difficult. Thanks again, and have a great day.

  • Hey Carol Ann,

    Look back about three posts and you will find that recipe. I'd already asked for it. I think I'm going to really like it since I didn't see the word "tumeric". Don't know why, but don't like the taste of that in my pickles.

  • Hi clueless,

    I have a recipe for Dill Pickle Slices, and I don't see why you couldn't make it into relish.

    Dill Pickle Slices

    Garlic cloves
    1 qt. vinegar
    2 qt. water
    3/4 c. salt
    1/2 box dillseed

    Wash cucumbers and cut crosswise in about 1/2-inch slices. Place 2 garlic cloves in bottom of each sterilized jar. Pack cucumbers in jar. Place 2 garlic cloves on top of cucumbers. Combine vinegar, water, salt, and dillseed in saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil. Pour over cucumbers. Place about1/2 teaspoon dillseed in each jar. Place sterlilized lids and bands on jars. Screw bands as tight as possible.

    This recipe comes fromCanning, Preserving and Freezing Cookbook: Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers (1975).
    It came from Mae Mays from Tutt Jr. HS, Augusta, Georgia.

    Instead of cutting the cucumbers in slices I would use a food grinder. If you don't want Kosher Dill Relish simply leave out the garlic. I think the 1/2 teaspoon of dillseed that you add at the end is from the mixture you boiled.

    Hope this will help.
