Original recipe yields 10 pints



  1. Place onions, cabbage, bell peppers, and tomatoes in a food processor, and pulse until finely minced. Drain, and remove contents to a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt, cover, and let stand overnight. Pour contents into a colander; rinse, and drain. Return contents to bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together mustard seed, celery seed, turmeric, sugar, white vinegar, and water. Pour over vegetable mixture, and stir to combine.
  3. Pour mixture into a large pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes. Store, refrigerated, in sterilized, sealed pint jars.

I have used a recipe similar to this for years. The problem with this one is that you put everything in a food processor. I have tried that and using a grinder and always go back to chopping by hand. A bit more work but the colors stay true and so do the flavors. Sometimes you just can't short cut.

Unfortunately, I can't agree with the previous reviewer - I scaled it down to 10 servings but made this recipe as written, and I didn't like it at all. I'm not sure if it was the turmeric, the mustard seeds or both, but it tasted bitter; it was extremely unappetizing-looking too. Husband refused to even try it. Sorry.



I haven't yet made this exact recipe, but it is nearly identical to the one my grandma made for many, many years. I have her recipe and the only differences are that she used both red and green peppers (6 red and 10 green), a bit more celery seed, and cider vinegar instead of white. This is my favorite relish! It's not a dill relish, nor a traditional sweet relish. It has a taste all its own, and nothing I find in the stores tastes as good as this does, to me.
