Its funny how we have such similar foods but under different names in the same language.

20 lbs of onions only works out to about 2.5 gallons but to make the whole recipe you need something like a 5 gallon pot. A canning pot will work but a turkey frying pot is better because it has a smooth bottom and is easier to stir.

I split the half recipe into 2 batches. The other 1/4 has 5 jalepenos in it.

Looks good. Now you just need some hotdogs or greens.

Never had onion relish just plain pickle relish also love Chow Chow when I can find some that is good.
