I should have bought some hot dogs at Costco!

My sister came over with a HUGE bag of cucumbers and helped me make relish.  It turned out awesome but I definitely couldn’t of done it without her help.  We chopped all the veggies up the night before.  I chopped and she pulsed everything in the food processor so it got done really quickly.

Don’t be surprised if you get a Jar of relish for Christmas this year!

Cucumber Relish (recipe comes from my sister’s MIL)

  • 10 large cucumbers (I think I had more than 10…actually, i know I had more than 10!)
  • 1 small-medium sized cabbage
  • 6 onions
  • 6 red or green peppers (or yellow, or orange)
  • pickling salt
  • 9 cups sugar
  • 1/4 lb mustard seeds
  • 1/2 gallon (8 cups) vinegar
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup dry mustard
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • cold water
  • 15-20 500ml (17 oz) Canning Jars

Chop and pulse in a food processor, cucumbers, cabbage, onions and peppers.  Sprinkle with a handful of pickling salt and let stand overnight.

Drain off the liquid.

Add sugar, mustard seeds and vinegar and bring to a boil.  Boil and stir for 30 minutes.

Make a paste with the flour, dry mustard, turmeric and water.

Add a bit of the boiling veggie liquid to the paste and whisk until super smooth.  Add this into the pot and simmer for 2 minutes.

Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal.

Put Jars into a water hot bath for 10 minutes.

Let sit overnight and then test the lids to be sure they sealed!  (all 20 of mine popped within an hour!)

This yielded me 20 500 ml Jars!
