Surest way to achieve a reputation as a true gourmet is; to make your own sauces, preserves, relishes and such. Put them up in jars during the harvest season, and your shelves will hold a variety of your finger tips the year 'round. To turn the trick start with a basic recipe, then add your own choice of seasoning. For example, here's relish recipe, zesty in itself, and a perfect foil for your own culinary artistry. Perhaps you'd like a dash of curry, chili"pbwder or garlic. Your taste may run to the less commonly used spices—cardamon or cummin. It's all up to you, and you'll have fun testing and trying until you've found the perfect blend. Cucumber, Onion and Pepper Relish 4 cups chopped cucumbers 1 tablespoon salt 2 cups chopped onion 2 teaspoons mustard seed 1 cup chopped green pepper 2 teaspoons celery seed 1 cup chopped sweet red pepper 1 to 2 cups sugar 1 small pod hot red pepper 4 cups vinegar Wash and drain vegetables. Peel onion and remove, seeds from peppers. Chop and measure vegetables. Mix all ingredients. Cook until vegetables are tender but not soft. Taste, and add more seasoning, as desired. Pour, boiling hot, into hot jars. Seal at once, as directed by the manufacturer. Prize Winning Recipe By Mrs. Ethel E.
