Directions

  1. Combine the cabbage, cucumber, tomato, carrot, onion, and pickling salt in a large bowl; toss to combine. Allow to sit 2 hours. Rinse the mixture thoroughly with cold water; drain and squeeze to remove excess liquid.
  2. Combine the vegetables with the water and vinegar in a large pot. Bring the mixture to a boil and allow to boil for 1 hour.
  3. Stir the celery salt, mustard seed, and sugar into the vegetables. Mix the mustard, turmeric, and flour together in a bowl. Carefully spoon 2 tablespoons of the boiling water into the mustard mixture; stir into a paste. Add the paste back into the boiling vegetable mixture; cook and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes more. Cool completely in refrigerator before using.

We tried half a batch in hopes of finding a recipe to help use up the last of the garden's produce. We are usually not huge relish fans, but my mother, sister, and I actually enjoyed this one! We had to try it that night on brats. I am making a whole batch today with the kids. They are great helpers with the prep work.

My husband goes shopping for the vege's just so this get's made. He absolutely loves this relish. He wants it everyday on sandwiches I make for his lunches. And he is not a tomato lover, just this relish has him over the top.
