We actually waited until Thursday night to start the process. We had a whole set up going and were quite efficient if I dare say so myself!
Day 1: First, we washed and chopped and then food processed all the veggies.
|We are ready to roll!|
|Pretty colourful start to the relish|
|Too full :(|
After some discussion and looking at all the pros and cons to each pot, we decided on a sturdy 32L pot for the grand ol' price of $74.99. Ouch. That wasn't in the budget this month. But it was needed and it will last us for the rest of our relish making career. We hope.
|The one on the left was the chosen pot!|
|Cute baby onions from our garden|
|All the veggies chopped and ready to soak for the night!|
|I love my new pot.|
|A little late night snack|
Day 2: Time to add spices, cook and then can!
|Preparing the "sauce"|
|Draining the pot was complicated|
|And so was stirring the contents!|
|Filling the jars with yummy relish|
|Our beautiful jars of Nanny's Sunshine Pickle!|
|4 jars turned into 3 1/4|
