Garden Patch Relish

 I have several (and I do mean several) Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks.  I love them!  I can always find something fun in them.  Recipes, gifts to make, ideas for my home and stories from other women that make me cry!  I saw this relish recipe and thought I would make some for gifts this Christmas.  Yes, I said it.  Christmas.  :)

 Here are all my veggies chopped up and taking a bath in the salt water.

 Of course I HAD to watch my most favorite movie in the entire universe (You've Got Mail) while chopping up all the vegetables.  Right?

And for the record, I think Meg Ryan is a doll in this movie.

Ta Da!!  Here they are all finished.  Once again, there was music to my ears coming out of the kitchen.  Ping...Pong...Ping as the jars sealed.  The recipe said it would make 10 1/2 pint jars....but I got 11 out of it. 
I am excited to give some of these away as gifts and to eat some myself.  :)

It's great to hear somebody saying nice things about my favourite actress, Meg Ryan. I've been a fan of hers for years and I've even got a blog where I post about her movies !
You've got a nice looking Blog with some great pictures so I'll try and drop by again soon.
See you.. Paul
