Serves: 8
  • 1 quart chopped cucumbers (3-4 medium cucumbers)
  • 2 cups onions, chopped (2 medium)
  • 1 cup Green Bell Pepper, chopped (1 large)
  • 1 cup Red Bell Pepper, chopped (1 large)
  • ¼ cup Salt
  • 3½ cups Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Celery Seed
  • 1 tablespoon Mustard Seed

  1. Prepare your jars by sterilizing them. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Place jars on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for at least 20 minutes to sterilize.
  2. Fill a small saucepan with water and add jar lids and rings. Bring water to 180 degrees, cover and remove from heat to sterilize.
  3. Combine cucumbers, onions, and green & red bell peppers in a large bowl.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and cover with cold water. Let stand for 2 hours.
  5. Drain liquid and rinse well. Drain again getting as much water as you can off vegetables.
  6. Combine sugar, spices, and vinegar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  7. Add drained vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes.
  8. Pack hot relish into your sterilized jars, leaving ¼ inch at top of jar.
  9. Remove any air bubbles, and secure your lids on the top of the jars.
  10. Add jars to a large pan of boiling water. There should be about 1" of water covering tops of jars.
  11. Cover with lid and process for 10 minutes.
  12. Lift jars out, dry off and allow to cool.
  13. Lids will be slightly concave (curving down in the center) when they are sealed.
