Here's a gift that has bite! Include a festive tag that lists serving suggestions. For example, the spicy beer mustard is great with pretzels or as a condiment for bratwurst. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
This relish recipe from a friend is similar to giardiniera only sweeter. I have a certain sense of pride when giving jars as gifts knowing all the vegetables were raised in my own garden.—Linda Chapman, Meriden, Iowa
Treasured family recipes like this one become like old friends. These crispy spears have a slightly salty, tart flavor with a good balance of dill, garlic and peppers. They make a great accompaniment for the shredded beef sandwiches.
