Giardiniera. But with Fair approaching I wanted to make a vegetable based relish. I semi followed a recipe from the Old Faithful book by Ball called the Blue Book.
I replaced some of the peppers with carrots. I know a lot of people can not eat peppers due to heartburn and due to my entertainment addiction I want everyone to be happy!
Pre-chop and use a food processor
6 to 7 lbs of pickling chopped cucumbers
2 cups of chopped carrots
1 cup of any color bell pepper chopped
1 cup chopped one white onion
1/4 cup fresh chopped dill
1/2cup pickling salt
2 tsp turmeric
1 quart water
1 quart 5 % vinegar
This makes approximately 6 pint
Ina large stainless steel pot put your brine. That is the salt, turmeric, water, sugar, dill and vinegar. Heat the brine up and add your chopped vegetables. Simmer for about 10 minutes
This is just one more thing you can add to your no need to buy at the store list!
