Pickle Relish Recipe and Garden Chatter

. .. .. .. .. .. .. ... .. .... ... .. .... .. .. .. .. .. .. . .. 

Pickle Relish
8 cups cucumbers, finely chopped or grated**
1 cup onion, grated**
1 T. salt
3/4 cup vinegar
3/4 cup water
3 cups sugar
1 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp. celery salt
1 tsp. turmeric

Mix cucumbers and onion.  Let stand 1 hour.  Drain.  In large kettle combine all ingredients.  Boil for 20 minutes and put in hot, clean canning jars.  Seal.

Delicious and ever oh so easy!!

** I just used my food processor.  It made this task of chopping or grating even easier..

So, how are you doing today?

I'm loving this day of cooler temperatures.  The kids are all home and I'm watching my cousin's 9 year old...
A lot of action, both of the real and make believe.  Oh, and there's lots of banter and chattering going on here today, as well!!

We've been picking green beans by the handfuls, out of my flower garden, here and there, just enjoying them for snacking on.  I hear there are more beans to pick, in a couple of days, from up at my Aunt's garden.  She lives about a half hour away... but its where we ended up (helping to) putting in a garden.  We'll share the bounty with my Mom and of course my Aunt Mary whose place it is and where the garden is located.  All I really cared about was planting some string beans for freezing, red beets to pickle and can, and reaping the bounty (Lord willing!) of a few more cucumbers.  We'll gladly take in a few ears of fresh corn and tomatoes for eating...here and there... along with a zucchini or two.

I'd like to can up some more of that salsa because we threw in a few hot peppers, into that garden, and I do know who and where I can get more,  if needed. :)

Perhaps, some more zucchini jam is in order to!
Have you ever heard of such a thing?  Another kitchen secret... jam from zucchini!

The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof...
~ Psalm 24:1

May the peace of the Lord fill your heart and home today!!
