It’s that time of year where I cook up a storm in preparation for the upcoming holiday season. I make my Christmas cake, my pepper jelly and sometime my antipasto. The antipasto is awesome for when you get that unexpected company and you have nothing to feed them, you just go in the cupboard or fridge, pull out the antipasto and grab a few crackers and ta-da, instant appetizer. It also makes a great gift for those hard to buy folks! Here’s what you need to do:


  • 1 Spanish onion chopped finely
  • 3 cans chopped mushrooms, drained
  • 500 grams of cut green beans, chopped small
  • 2 x 13oz jars pickled onions, chopped
  • 48 oz jar of sweet mixed pickles chopped
  • 16 oz can/jar of black or green olives
  • 500 grams of cauliflowerettes (I use frozen, easy to chop too!)
  • 4 x 6oz cans of tuna, drained
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 3 large carrots chopped
  • 28 oz tin of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 48 oz bottle of ketchup
  • 300g bag of frozen mini shrimp or canned


  1. Put all ingredients except tuna and shrimp, into a large pot.
  2. boil for 30 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Add the fish in.
  4. Stir and simmer another 30 minutes.
  5. Pour into hot jars with sterile lids.
  6. Store in a cool dark place!
  7. enjoy as an appetizer with crackers, baguettes etc.
  8. give as a gift for the hostess too!
  9. You can do less mushrooms and more olives if that’s your thing!

You and I are obviously on the same wave length when it comes to the size of our recipes, and for similar reasons. I love this one and can’t wait to make it. I like that I can use frozen cauliflower too. Great time saver! Thanks!
