Thekitchenman Cucumber Relish/ Ball Park Franks!

When I get to feed an up and coming ball club. We have a great number of baseball parks here in South Surrey BC. I like watching the little slugger’s try and hit that ball clear out of the park. After a hard hitting and running to home plate has my team ready to chow down on some Grape Kool-Ade and a platter full of steamed All Beef Nathan’s Ball Park Franks.

I make this awesome relish that goes with these most delectable tube steaks.

Here it is: When hand washing, you will be able to detect any bruising or impurities.

I have lectured to my staff and friends that the end result of a recipe only turns out delicious if you start with great tasting veggies, fresh dried herbs, spices and full strength vinegars.

3 onions

4 ribs of celery

1 green pepper 1 red pepper

4 apples

2 cups cauliflower flowerets
