The reputation of this tasty relish goes way beyond your Thanksgiving dinner plate. It’s great with poultry and pork, and will even perk up a ho-hum deli sandwich on-the-fly. —Melode Weiner, Plymouth, California
Now you can have all the goodness of crunchy sweet-sour pickles without going to the trouble of canning them. A batch of these puckery slices can keep in the freezer for up to 6 weeks—but they never last that long at my house!

This fresh ruby-colored relish is sweet and tangy, and the apples and celery give it a terrific crunch. At our house, it's a holiday menu mainstay since it's so pleasant with poultry and pork.

My mom's delicious pickles, a Christmas tradition, are quick and easy to make since they start with a jar of purchased dill pickles and then are just "dressed up." They would make a nice gift from the kitchen in a pretty glass jar.—Denise Bitner, Reedsville, Pennsylvania
I was looking for a zippy relish to jazz up plain hot dogs. Not wishing to make a run to the store, I rummaged through my refrigerator and found these items and thought they would be good together—and I was right! This relish also goes well on toasted bagel bites.
A lovely red color and nice tangy flavor make this relish a hit whenever I serve it. It's great at Thanksgiving and Christmas - or any time. I keep frozen cranberries on hand so we can enjoy it year-round.

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.
