emoticon about that--I did leave the sugar out.
Thanks for catching that mistake:)
You can also do a 1/2 batch if you like. That is what I did 1st to make sure everyone liked it.

Also should add I'm scientific-minded so I understand about following the recipe exactly, sterilization and microorganisms and sealing, etc.

I have a good recipe from a SparkFriend for the kind of relish that tastes like bread & butter pickles, thanks.

Now I'm looking for a sweet pickle (cucumber) relish recipe that tastes like store-bought, traditional, plain sweet pickle relish you buy in the grocery store.

I'm a first-time canner so would appreciate a simple recipe that someone's actually used themselves personally.

Also I plan to divide the batch, make half with organic sugar and half with stevia. Any tips, hints, or recipes from anyone?

I'd rather start with one that I KNOW will work rather than one off the internet. I know to use the little cukes not the salad cukes.

I have the Ball Blue book but by "tips" I mean, does anyone have a simple recipe or recipe & tips for first time canner.

Also any tips for buying a grinder? If you were a first-time canner what kind of grinder would you buy?

Thanks alot! Carol
