|Those brown rock looking things are potatoes.|
I went potato picking two weeks ago, and I am going back again this weekend.
I am addicted to picking those brown bumps out of the soil.
I had three bags full! 75 pounds of potatoes!
Below is my homemade sweet pickle relish. I have to admit it isn't much to look at. In fact it looks more like jelly, but it tastes awesome! It is slightly sweeter than normal relish, but I loved it. When you put it in your potato salad or chicken salad it spreads out. It doesn't stay in a clump. It disperses through your dish just like regular relish. I made potato salad, chicken salad, and turkey salad with this relish and everyone wanted me to make more.
If you start with fresh garden veggies, you are set!
I found the recipe here at heritage recipes. I halved the recipe when I made this.
6 lbs cucumbers [Do not peel]
4 cups onions
2 green peppers
1 red pepper
Grind and mix together with
1/2 c canning salt
2 qts Boiling water.
Let stand for 1 hour.
(I pulsed the cucumber, onion, and peppers in my Vita-mix. I also used sea salt, I didn't plan on storing this.)
Drain well, then add the following,
1 tsp. mustard seed
1 tsp. tumeric
1 pint vinegar
5 cups sugar
1 Tbsp. corn starch (I used arrowroot)
Boil 1/2 hour and seal hot in pint jars.
Makes around 6 pints.
