Corn Relish (Mrs. Borgwordt)

I was initially picturing a whole-kernel corn relish, but since this goes through a food chopper, it must be more like a spread. The 6-7 pints would then be canned as per the desired canning method. Corn Relish 1 dozen corn [ears] scraped (large) 6 green peppers 1 qt pickles (skinned) 1 qt ripe tomatoes … Continue reading

Antipasto

This recipe for antipasto reminds me more of a salsa than a traditional Italian antipasto. However, it could be served over toasted bread like a bruschetta if desired. Typical antipasto is made of fresh meats and cheeses, garnished with herbs and other vegetables. In Italian tradition, antipasto is served at the beginning of the meal … Continue reading

Chow Chow #3

This dish is most commonly associated with the Southern United States, Pennsylvania and some parts of Eastern Canada. While there isn’t much definitive evidence of its … Continue reading

Green Tomato Relish for Sandwich Spread
