Sweet and Spicy Radish Relish

Sweet and Spicy Radish Relish

Radishes can be so much more than just a salad item. This recipe is a great way to use your radish harvest.

1 pound red radish
1 small red onion
1 Tbsp mustard seed
3/4 Cup white sugar
1 Cup white vinegar
1 tsp dried chilli pepper flakes
2 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp white vinegar

Grated radish

Use a food processor  to finely mince the radish and onion. Using a pulse or grater option is best.  You want small even minced pieces but not mush.

Add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil.  Mix cornstarch with the second portion of vingear and stir into the boiling mixture to thicken.

Fill small sterilized jars leaving 1/2 inch space.  Cover with a clean new sealer lid.  Process jars in a canner for 15-20 minutes.

Allow jars to cool.  Ensure all jars are sealed.  Unsealed jars should be stored in the refrigerator.  Label and date prior storing.
