Does anyone have a recipe for piccalilli relish? The company we always got it from says that they discontinued it. Help, my husband LOVES this.
Barb from Mountaindale, NY
This is the recipe my mother used, I hope it helps.
2 qts chopped green tomatoes; 2 cups chopped green peppers (or mixed, red & green); 2 cups chopped onions; 1 pint white vinegar; 1/4 cup salt; 3 cups sugar; 1 small pkg pickle spices..put in bag or cheese cloth. Mix all ingredients & simmer for 30 minutes, stir occasionally. Remove spice bag & put the relish in jars and seal. Makes 7 pints. I have not found any others to beat or match this. Good Luck.

Makes: 2.7kg (6lb)
2.7kg (6lb) Vegetables (Cauliflower Sprigs, Baby Onions, Cucumber or Gherkin, Baby Green Tomatoes, Runner beans, etc)
1.2lt (2 pints) White Vinegar
450g (1lb) Salt
40g (1oz) Cornflour or Plain Flour
160g (6oz) Sugar
25g (1oz) Dry Mustard

Clean and prepare the vegetables.
Spread the vegetables over a large dish and sprinkle with the salt.
Place a plate on top of the vegetables and weigh it down, leave in a cool place for 24 hours.
Drain, wash and rinse the vegetables.
Place most of the vinegar, the sugar and spices into a large saucepan, heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the vegetables and simmer gently until the required texture is attained, the vegetables should be crispy and not overcooked.
(The level of crispiness depends on personal choice, the vegetables will soften further after pickling).
Mix the flour with the remaining vinegar and add to the saucepan.
Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 2 - 3 minutes to cook the flour.
Pot and seal.
Leave for 6 - 8 weeks to allow the flavour to mature
