OLD FASHIONED DILL RELISH FROM SCRATCH
4 lbs small pickling cukes
1/4 cup pickling salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 cups white vinegar
1/3 cup white sugar
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 TBS dill seeds
2 tsp mustard seed
1-1/2 cups finely chopped onion
Scrub cucumbers and trim off ends. Cut into chunks. In batches in a food processor, pulse the cucumbers 8 to 10 times to process them into 1/8 to 1/4 inch pieces.
In a large bowl, sprinkle cucumbers with salt and turmeric. Stir in 1 cup of cold water and let stand for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Drain into a large sieve and rinse under cold water. Drain again, pressing out moisture.
In a Dutch oven, bring vinegar, sugar, garlic, dill seeds and mustard seed to a boil. Add cucumber mixture and onions and return to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes.
Fill hot 1-cup canning jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Cover with prepared lids. Screw on bands just until resistance is met then increase to fingertip tight. Boil in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes, or use the directions by the manufacturer.
Makes about six 1-cup jars
