Before we make this recipe we need to make a trip to the garden. See that nice green plant that is growing? That is a pickle plant that my Mom planted in her garden and it sprouted from a variety of seeds called Sweet Success Cucumber Seeds.
Pickles vs Cucumbers
Once the pickles are mature enough we carefully pick them off the plant. If left on the plant longer, the pickles grow bigger and bigger until they eventually go from the pickle stage and into the cucumber stage.
To make Homemade Sweet Pickle Relish you will need the following:
- 1 1/2 quart pickles
- 1 green or red bell pepper
- 1 onion, large
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar – Mom and I use Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar.
We start by collecting fresh, organic pickles, then wash and dry them with a soft towel. Next, using a food grinder we grind the pickles, pepper, and onion together, then add spices to make this flavorful, colorful recipe.
My mother also makes fabulous canned pickles, but I’ll leave that for another post.
Pardon me while I go light our grill… I need to go grill myself a hot dog now and top it with a big dollop of Homemade Sweet Pickle Relish!
