HOMEMADE SWEET RELISH FROM SCRATCH

7 English cucumbers
4 sweet onions, peeled
1/4 cup pickling salt
3 cups white sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp celery seed
3 cups distilled white vinegar
1 cup water

Grate the cucumbers and onions into a large bowl. I use the large holes on a box grater. Sprinkle the pickling salt over the top. Cover tightly and let sit at room temperature overnight.

The next day squeeze as much liquid out of the cucumber mixture as you can and set aside. Whisk the sugar, flour, turmeric, ginger and celery seed and set aside.

Heat the vinegar and water in a large pot over medium-high heat. Now whisk in the sugar mixture until smooth, and then stir in the cucumber mixture. Bring to a boil and cook for approximately 15 minutes or until thickened. Stir frequently.

Sterilize the jars and lids in hot water for at least 5 minutes. Pack the relish in the hot, sterilized jars until 1/4 inch from the top.

Run a knife around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a damp paper towel to remove any relish residue. Top with lids and screw on the rings.

Place a rack in the bottom of a large stock pan and fill half way with water. Bring to a boil over high heat and carefully lower the jars into the pot using a holder. Leave a 2 inch space between the jars.

Pour in more boiling water if necessary because the water must be at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a full boil and cover the pot; process for ten minutes.

Now remove the jars from the stock pot and place on a cloth covered surface until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with your finger, ensuring that the seal is tight. (The lid will NOT move up or down when you do this) Store in a dark and cool area. This fresh cucumber recipe is a great one to use up those cukes.  Now on to my next hot dog relish recipe.





Use these spicy sweet pickle relish recipes on brats, burgers and in potato salad.

SLOW COOKER SWEET PICKLE RELISH FROM SCRATCH

2 lbs Walla Walla sweet onions, roughly chopped
1 cup molasses (Sugar Mill)
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp red pepper, crushed (optional)
1/2 tsp hot sauce (or to taste)


Place onions and crushed red peppers in a blender and chop fine.

Place all of the above ingredients in a crock pot and set on high.  Simmer for 8 hours, stirring occasionally and cool.

Can this sauce right away or store in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator before using.







OLD FASHIONED DILL HOT DOG RELISH RECIPE

4 lbs small pickling cukes
1/4 cup pickling salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 cups white vinegar
1/3 cup white sugar
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 TBS dill seeds
2 tsp mustard seed
1-1/2 cups finely chopped onion

Scrub cucumbers and trim off ends. Cut into chunks. In batches in a food processor, pulse the cucumbers 8 to 10 times to process them into 1/8 to 1/4 inch pieces.

In a large bowl, sprinkle cucumbers with salt and turmeric. Stir in 1 cup of cold water and let stand for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Drain into a large sieve and rinse under cold water. Drain again, pressing out moisture.

In a Dutch oven, bring vinegar, sugar, garlic, dill seeds and mustard seed to a boil. Add cucumber mixture and onions and return to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes.

Fill hot 1-cup canning jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Cover with prepared lids. Screw on bands just until resistance is met then increase to fingertip tight. Boil in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes, or use the directions by the manufacturer.

Makes about six 1-cup jars

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
