Beet Relish (VRP 096)

Share Your Love of Vintage Recipes!!!

Beet Relish

This old-fashioned Beet Relish recipe is written on a lined index card with “ink” instead of a pencil or ballpoint pen.

It is a bit unique since it includes chopped raw cabbage and horseradish as ingredients.

Whether you want to use it fresh or can it, either way, this sounds tasty!!! What will you pair it with to serve?

Found this recipe here shortly after making a variation on my own from a card in my grandmother’s cookbook (identified as mother’s favourite pickle). Only difference is in the use of pepper - mine called for 1 tbsp black pepper and 1/2 tsp red pepper. It’s definitely a “keeper”.
