Made my first batch of cucumber relish this morning for the season.
This relish is fast and easy to make. It is the relish that my mom always made and I have been making it for years. We like it on hamburgers and hot dogs. I have tried a couple of others over the years but my family likes this recipe.
You will need one dozen medium sized cucumbers. Wash and cut off the ends. Chop the cucumbers in a food processor. Also chop one large celery stalk and six small onions. Put cucumbers, celery, and onions in a bowl and throw a handful of salt over it and let sit one hour.
After sitting the hour put in a colander, rinse and let drain.
Put cucumber mixture into a large pan on the stove and add: one pint apple cider vinegar ~ 2 cups sugar ~ 1 teaspoon each of mustard seed and celery seed ~ 1/4 teaspoon turmeric.
Stir and bring to a boil, put into hot jars, seal and process in a hot water bath for 5 minutes.
This batch made 4 pints. My jars have been pinging, love that sound!
Found a tutorial for a cute lunch bag that looks pretty easy to make so am off to give it a try. Think they might make some good Christmas gifts!
Enjoy your day!
