Easy To Prepare Hot Dog Relish Recipe

Summertime cookouts involve a host of great grilled sausages, burgers, and hot dogs. I like a good dog now and then as long as I have the right condiments on standby to top away this grilled treat. I will leave mustards and ketchup (or catsup) out of this post as people seem to get carried away about whether ketchup should even be near the presence of a hot dog. The real essence of hot dog toppers aside from the heat of the occasional sport pepper, is the pickle relish. I have a great relish recipe from my grandmother that goes well on hot dogs, and even Polish or Italian sausage. This recipe yields five pints and requires clean and sterilized jars.
