“This is an old recipe I got from a good friend many years ago. I wish I had a pound for every jar of this I did up in the autumn. My family loved it and so did I. It goes great with any cooked meats and is wonderful in sandwiches. Overnight soak time for the vegetables is not reflected in the cooking times.”
