Thread Name: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
This afternoon I turned on a movie and spent the two hours listening to it in the background while assembling the chopped ingredients (including cucumbers, pepper, and garlic from the garden) for a more-or-less dill relish. I had two recipes I couldn't decide between so merged them a little bit. Added mustard seed and one hot pepper to the mix that called for red bell pepper. And the dill recipe didn't have any onion or garlic like the other one did (but the other second recipe was full of sugar and had cornstarch as a thickener.) We'll see how it turns out. The proportions of vege to apple cider vinegar was good, though there was a lot of liquid left over at the end, since cucumbers are so wet to begin with.

The jars processed for 15 minutes and are now cooling, with some leftover in a jar in the fridge to sample once it's had a little time to sit and merge flavors. Yield: three pint jars and six half-pint jars.
