I got a recipe from my mom for cucumber relish. She got the recipe from one of her good friends who just happens to be a great cook.
I ended up with 8 jars of cucumber relish, 8 pints of dill pickles and 3 pints of strawberry jam. The house is permeated with the smell of vinegar. So much so that hubby says his eyes are burning. Hmmm, it doesn't bother me. I LOVE it.
I hope that my garden produces much, much more so I get to can all summer long!
Here's the recipe for the cucumber relish:
6 large cucumbers
2 green peppers
2 red peppers (I didn't have any red, so I used all green)
1 Tbsp canning salt
2 cups sugar
2 cups vinegar
1 Tbsp celery seed
1 Tbsp mustard seed
Peel and seed cukes, chop onion, cukes, and peppers into small pieces. Add salt and mix together. Allow to sit 30 minutes and then drain.
Add rest of the ingredients and cook until thick. Pour into jars and seal.
