Grandma Matteson’s Perfect Pickle Relish



Grandma Matteson lived with us six months out of every year from the time I was four until she passed on twenty years later. Most of the cooking was done by her and she was the best. But then, isn’t everyone’s grandma the best? Her canned goods were stored on a shelf in the basement and we enjoyed her Pickle Relish all year long. Hope you do too!
