Artichoke Relish
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 pounds artichokes
1 cup salt
1 gallon water
6 red or green sweet peppers - (to 8)
6 large onions - (to 8)
1 pound sugar
1 quart vinegar
2 tablespoons mustard seed
1 tablespoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt

Select fresh, tender artichokes. Wash well and trim, if necessary.
Dissolve 1 cup salt in water in a large pan. Add artichokes and let stand
overnight. Drain well.

Organize ingredients, equipment, and work area. Remove stems and seeds
from peppers and peel onions. Grind peppers, onions, and artichokes,
using coarse blade. Set aside.

In a large preserving kettle, combine vinegar, sugar, and spices and heat
to boiling. Add ground vegetables and heat to boiling.

Ladle boiling mixture into hot jars to within 1/4-inch of the tops. Run a
slim, non metal tool down along the insides of jars to release any air
bubbles. Add additional relish, if necessary, to fill to within 1/4-inch
of the tops of the jars.

Wipe tops and thread of jars with damp clean cloth. Put on lids and screw
bands as manufacturer directs. Process in boiling water bath 10 minutes.

This recipe yields 10 half-pint jars.
