Cucumber Pepper Relish Recipe Card Front

Front of the newspaper clipping for Cucumber Pepper Relish recipe.

There are no notations of the publication date, newspaper name, nor who submitted the recipe for publication.

There is a reference on the newspaper clipping for the Chili Sauce recipe from the Family Weekly newspaper dated September 6, 1959, which references this recipe. Therefore, I am going to assume that they were printed at the same time.
