Homemade Relish

You will need to have 2 giant stock pots for this recipe becuase you will need one stock pot to bring the ingredients to a boil in and then another stock pot for boiling your canning jars and canning lids. You will need to boil these items to steralize them and to allow them to tighten the lids to preseve the relish.

Ingredients:

7 Large Cucumbers (peeled)

5 large Sweet Vidalia Onions

1 Small Handful Pickling Salt

3 cups White Distilled Vinegar

3 cups White Sugar

1/2 Cup Flour

1 teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon Dry Mustard

Pinch Cayenne Pepper


Step One:

In the first step you will need to combine the 7 cucumbers, onions and pickling salt in a large bowl or pot. Mix it all in and stir well and let sit for 3-4 hours or overnight is the best. When this is done you will need to put into a colender and let drain.

Step Two:

Put the cucumber mix in a large stock pot and add the 2 1/2 cups of viegar. Take a 1/2 cup of vinegar in a small container and add the 1/2 cup of flour with the turmeric, dry mustard and cayenne pepper to make a small paste before you add this to the remaining mixture. When you are done adding this to the mixture bring it a boil slowly. Boil for 15 minutes stirring it constantly.

Step three:

While you are boiling your ingredients you will also be needing to boil your canning jars to make sure that they are well sterilized before adding all your relish to each container.

When each container is ready you will need to have a giant scooper ready to fill your jars. I would recommend filling each jar about 3/4 of the way to leave a little room for the condensation that you will get in each jar from the cooling down process. Each time you fill a jar you will need to put the lid and ring on and tighten it and set it off to the side while you fill another and continue on.

Once you have filled all jars, You can use them as gifts or you can use them as soon as you want or save them as they are good for several months and years before they go bad. 

I hope you like the recipe and will give it  a try.
