Dill Pickle Relish

I decided to make dill pickle relish, too. I have made quite a few jars of sweet pickle relish but I do like a good dill pickle relish on hamburgers… This one came from a Canadian website, so I had to change the units but here it is in American… LOL

4 pounds cucumbers, chopped very small

1/4 cup pickling salt

1/2 tsp turmeric

2 cups white vinegar

1/3 cup sugar

4 cloves minced garlic

1 Tbsp dill seeds

2 tsp mustard seeds

1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion

Combine cucumbers, salt and turmeric in a large bowl. Stir in 1 cup cold water. Let sit for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse well in colander, pressing out moisture.
