I needed another way to use up the hot banana peppers and cucumbers I picked out of my garden. Got surfing the net for something and found this recipe. I had to fix it to our taste. I'm posting how I made my relish.
Combine peppers, cucumbers, onion, and the 1/4 cup + 2 tbs canning salt in a large glass or ceramic bowl, cover with cold water and let stand for 2 hours. Drain thoroughly, pressing on the vegetables to remove excess liquid.
Combine the sugar and vinegar in a large pot, tie the pickling spices in cheesecloth and add to the liquid. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes.
Add vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove spice bag. Pack into hot jars and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.
