Need a Chicago style hot dog relish recipe
I can make killer buns (thanks to TFL) and buy the Vienna beef hot dogs but I cannot find a recipe for the relish to go on my dogs. I'm into making my own kraut and pickles but have never been able to find "the recipe" for this relish. I'm not even sure if the "real thing" is made with cucumbers,cabbage or green tomatoes. I have tried different variations and never achieved the right texture and flavor. I believe cloves are an important ingredient in the spices.
I have searched extensively for an "atomic" Chicago hot dog style relish recipe that has been tried and verified as being close in flavor and texture to the real thing. Even Google has failed me. I want a recipe that has been vetted and approved.
Has anyone here actually ever made the relish I am talking about? I hope so!
