Does anyone have a good recipe for making sweet pickle relish? I don't like the store bought sweet relish because it's loaded with preservatives and artificial colors, it tastes yucky. I'd like to start making it at home. I know it's just cucumbers, vinegar and sugar, but it seems like it might be hard to make it come out right.

Find a bread and butter pickle recipe that you like and grind the ingredients. My mother did that and it makes a marvellous relish.

my mom used to make what's called cha-cha(relish).
It was always so delicious!

The one above really isn't what I wanted to post - something more like this :

Ditto what Mary said below. :-)

My mom canned some relish that I believe was bread and butter pickle relish that lasted for years & years. When that ran out she ended up taking cucumber chip pickles we had and chopping them up in the food processor with a little bit of the juice. Tasted just as good. We only use it for hot dogs so it made sense not to have a shipload of it around.

Here is the recipe I have used for years. It is from the Ball Blue Book.

4 cups (960ml)chopped cucumbers
2 cups (480ml) chopped onions
1 chopped green pepper
1 chopped sweet red pepper
1/4 cup canning salt (DO NOT USE TABLE SALT) will make the cucumbers limp
3 1/2 cups sugar(840ml)
2 cups(840) cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon (15 ml) celey seed
1 Tablespoon mustard seed.
Combine cucumbers, onions, green and red peppers in a large bowl. sprinkle with salt and cover with cold water. Let stand 2 hours. Drain thoroughly; press out excess liquid. Combine sugar, vinegar and spices; heat to boiling. Add drained vegetables and simmer 10 minutes. Pack hot into hot pint jars, leaving 1/4 inch (16mm) head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Yield about 4 pints.

*I have a note on my recipe that this amount of liquid makes enough for a double batch of relish. Do not Double the mustard seed though.
I use an old fashion grinder to chop vegetables.

I am looking for a recipe for hot dog relish like the kind you buy - eg. Bicks. I have tried several but they are all on the sweet side. Anyone have such a recipe? Thanks.

I grind up;
1 peck of Hungarian yellow wax hot peppers
6 green peppers
6 onions
10 just turning tomatoes
Grind them all as you grind them put in a colander-in the sink to drain. after it is drained put into a large pot cover with apple cider vinegar about 5 cups of sugar. Bring to a boil then let it simmer. To the thickness of your choice. Put in containers and freeze or bottle it. For me it is easier to freeze-enjoy hot dogs or hamburgers. My husband loves it on spaghetti.

You can simply reduce the amount of sugar used in the recipes. I reduced by half and found it came closer to commercial versions.

Exactly what kind of relish are you looking for? Just a hot dog relish with a sour taste? Maybe I can help.

Here in the U.S. you can buy dill pickle relish. Sometimes you have to look carefully for it on the grocery shelf, though.

I don't have a recipe for relish with a mustard taste. All of my recipes are sweet relish as I can't eat anything very spicy. Sorry!
