Sweet Pickle Relish

We actually invent snacks just to incorporate this relish. It’s so delicious, I will never buy grocery store relish again.

The possibilities are endless: deviled eggs, cream cheese dip on crackers, tuna salad, and of course an amazing condiment for hotdogs and burgers! It adds a crisp, sweet, tangy flavor to anything you add it to. You may even find yourself eating it right out of the jar! It’s that good.

I did not invent this recipe myself, but it’s too good not to share! The first year I made this completely out of my garden produce. And I wish I would’ve made double or triple! We ran out of those first 8 jars I made in just 6 months! Plus everyone that tried it wanted to take a jar home and get the recipe from me.

The original recipe can be found at Genius Kitchen.
