This is another old recipe for making your own pickle relish. Homemade pickles and relishes are oh-so-good!

1 gallon ground-up unpeeled cucumbers
8 onions, ground
1/2 cup pickling salt
4 cups vinegar
1 cup water
5 cup sugar
1/2 tsp tumeric
2 tbsp celery seed
1 tbsp mustard seed
2 red bell peppers, ground
2 green bell peppers, ground

Mix cucumbers, onions, and salt. Allow to set for a couple of hours; drain and rinse with cold water, drain again. Put mixture into a large stockpot and add the vinegar, water, sugar, spices, and bell peppers. Allow the mixture to come to a boil but do not actually boil. Put into clean hot canning jars and seal with hot lids. Be sure lids seal. When sealed, you will hear the lids pop and the centers will slightly indent. This may take a few minutes. Any jars that do not seal should be refrigerated.
