WHAT’S COOKIN’ AT NORMA’S HOUSE?MMM…SPICY RELISH

“Relatively” speaking, Norma is my first cousin. We go back to a time when cousins were raised in close family relationships and we all enjoyed reunions where everyone brought a dish to pass and a copy of a recipe was always being requested.  Now in the retirement years the miles have come between us, but the love in relationships remains. Check out this mouth watering recipe she gave me many years ago. I think you’ll like it!

SERVES 4

1 med. onion coarsely chopped

1 package (10 oz) frozen mixed vegetables – thawed

1/2 cup cider vinegar

1/3 cup water

3 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp mustard seed

1/2 tsp salt

***

(Salt note; Salt enhances sweet flavors.  Proper function of salt is to develop and bring out natural food flavors, not to make foods taste salty.  Sprinkle small amount on or in fruit juices.  It increases sourness of acids and increases sweetness of sugars.)

The future is right ahead of me and new projects seem to beckon... Friends and memories of times past remain with me today. I love to share my stories along with comments and opinions (of course) of today's challenges. Photography is my hobby and opportunities to capture the scenes before me are mine for the taking. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife trails have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in the early fifties, college was of no interest to me. I have learned one important fact about life; whover decided when a person becomes "old"...didn't know what they were talking about...My theory is; you're as old as you think you are....(I'm thinking about it..haven't decided yet.)
