Has anyone used their Kitchenaid stand mixer food grinder attachment for relish? I did tonight with the largest plate it came with but it seemed to turn the pickles and peppers almost to mush.I'm thinking i need to order these plates and try them instead. Any input? http://www.amazon.com/Grinding-plate-discs-Kitchenaid-Chopper/dp/B00CG47SX0

Matthew, can I get you to describe what kind of relish you're making?
I ask as 'relish' is used to describe all sorts of things,
and (over here anyway) it's often pretty much interchangeable with 'chutney'.
Also, what sort of quantities are you making?

We did 30 1/2 pints of Jalapeno Pickle sweet relish last night. It turned out reasonably well but it would be nice if it was chunkier..............

The best method I know - frugal and low-tech - is a butcher block and two cleavers . Work the cleavers like drum sticks . You can get coarse to very fine consistencies and have fun while your at it . Listen to Benny Goodman and pretend your Gene Krupa or The Who and pretend your Keith Moon . The cleavers could last a lifetime and you might become good enough to start a band .
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
