Easy Relish

This is the relish that I grew up eating. Well, I didn't really eat much of it until recently. I just made a 1/2 batch of this and got about 4 pints.

I got three giant cucumbers given to me that were starting to get a bit yellow. The onions I have are softball sized, so I used 1, and since I'm not crazy about green peppers I only used 1 large one, and I still used 4 carrots since I had them. So not at all like mom's, and still the same in a way. It still tastes quite good, so modify if you want.

The original recipe.
8 green cucumbers, washed but not peeled
6 large onions (bigger than an egg, but not baseball size)
4 carrots
2 sweet green peppers
2 sweet red peppers
Put all the vegetables through the food chopper.  Add 1/2 c. salt and
let stand for 2 hrs.  Drain and rinse in fresh water.  Drain.
Mix to together :
5 c. sugar
3 c. vinegar
2 Tbsp. mustard seed
1 Tbsp. celery seed
Let this mixture come to a boil, add the vegetables & spices. Return to a boil and then fill in jars.

So last year I found a rhubarb relish recipe. it looked more like a chutney, but I though, what if I use rhubarb in this recipe instead of the cucumber? Also powdered mustard can be added for a bit of pungancy, but it can be dangerous.

Wow, amazing flavour and everyone liked it, so this year we will be making a large batch!
