Hello everyone, as you, I am sure have noticed, I have not blogged in quite a while,I have still been reading blogs I follow but have not been doing it myself. I want to get back to doing it a little and thought I would start with what I have been doing lately: Canning!! I have been canning different things and I thought I would share some of the recipes I am using in the next few posts. These are the recipes I am using this year. This one is:

Cucumber Relish

2 quarts  chopped cucumbers 
2 cups chopped sweet green peppers
2 cups chopped sweet red peppers
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup canning salt
2 quarts cold water
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 sticks cinnamon
1 TBSP mustard seed
1 TBSP turmeric
2 tsp whole allspice
2 tsp whole cloves
1 quart vinegar
Combine cucumbers, peppers and onions; sprinkle with turmeric. Dissolve salt in 2 quarts cold water and pour over vegetables; let stand 3 to 4 hours. Drain; cover vegetables with cold water and let stand 1 hour. Drain thoroughly. Tie spices in a cheesecloth bag; add to sugar and vinegar. Heat to boiling and pour over vegetables. Cover and let stand 12 to 18 hours in a cool place. Simmer until vegetables are hot. Bring to boiling. Pack, boiling hot, into hot pint jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Makes about 6 pints
(This recipe came from the Ball Blue Book)
