Ingredients

  • 4 large Vidalia onions, skins removed and finely chopped
  • 2 cups green cabbage, approximately 1/4 head finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 4 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 2 red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried mustard powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 3 (1 pint) canning jars and lids, sterilized

Preparation

In an extra large glass mixing bowl, combine chopped onions and shredded cabbage. Dissolve salt into 4 cups of water and pour over onions and cabbage. Allow to soak overnight.

 

Drain onions and cabbage and set aside.

 

In a large saucepan add apple cider vinegar and light brown sugar. Stir until brown sugar has dissolved. Add dry mustard, turmeric and remaining 1/2 cup water. Stir together.

 

Add flour and stir until a thick paste is formed. Whisk in celery seed and mustard seed.

 

Bring the entire mixture to a boil over medium high heat, making sure to stir constantly to prevent sticking. Once thickened, add the drained cabbage and red bell pepper.

 

Continue to boil for an additional 5 minutes.

 

Sterilize jars and lids directly before using for 10 minutes in simmering water or in the dishwasher. Remove one at a time when ready to fill.

 

While onion relish mixture is still hot, ladle into the hot sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Wipe rims with a clean damp cloth and seal jars with lids and rings.

 

Process in a boiling water bath (making sure water level is 1 inch over the top of the jars) for 15 minutes. Remove from water bath and allow to cool on the counter.

 

Serving Suggestions: Wonderful mixed into egg, chicken or tuna salad. Add a 1/2 teaspoon to the top of deviled eggs or top your just grilled hamburgers with 1 tablespoon.
