A Short Video of some Motifs/Techniques Learned in the Free Courses!
There has been so much squash and cucumbers in the garden this year, that we can't eat it fast enough. There are usually at least 2-3 of each on the vine that is too large to be good for dinner. So, I decided to do some pickle relish. I cored the large cucumbers, and peeled most of them. I cut out any brown spots on the squash as well as cut off both ends. Then, I cut the prepared cucumbers, squash, and a large sweet onion up into on inch pieces. Lastly, I put all of them into the food chopper and they came out nice and "relish" size. These were added to a boiling pot of 5 cups sugar, 5 cups vinegar, and 1 package of bread-n-butter pickle spice mix. After about 5 minutes of boiling I spooned the mixture into the jars, using a slotted spoon so I didn't get too much liquid. Cleaned the top of the jars off, and put on the lids and rings. They are a gorgeous color with the yellow squash! And taste just like pickles! I'm sure the relish will be great on hotdogs and as a side to dry beans and roast!
