Canned Sweet Pickle Relish

I am super excited about this recipe for homemade sweet pickle relish- especially with the abundance of cucumbers this time of year from my garden. We love sweet relish on burgers, hot dogs and especially love it in tuna! This recipe makes enough for 3 quarts or 6 pints. -Kristin

8 cucumbers
2 large onions
2 green peppers
1 red pepper
1/4 c. canning salt (pickling salt)
3 c. sugar
3 c. apple cider vinegar
2 T. whole celery seed
2 T. mustard seed
  • Cut all the vegetables into large chunks and place in a food processor. Pulse until all chopped very fine.
  • Place all the finely chopped vegetables into a large bowl and cover with water.
  • Let sit for 2 hours or more.
  • Drain the water off of the vegetables and press as much extra water out that you can.
  • Place vegetables into a large saucepan with the remaining ingredients.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Fill clean pint or quart jars and process in hot water bath canner.
  • Process pints for 10 minutes and quarts for 15 minutes.
