Reading: how to make regular relish from pickles

It’s relish like this that makes eating a sandwich or hot dog just that much better. It also adds a wonderful dimension to your pasta and potato salads. Last Summer I posted my recipe for Sweet Pickle Relish and here is the more savory version with a more pronounced dill flavor. It’s so easy to make and comes with instructions for canning so you can enjoy it all the year long.

Homemade Pickle Relish Recipe

Let’s get started!

We’re going to use regular cucumbers. They’re much cheaper than English cucumbers (the ones that come shrink-wrapped) or pickling cucumbers and taste exactly the same. I prefer to peel them since the peel is fairly tough. We’re also going to remove the seeds.

cucumbers

So peel the cucumbers and thinly slice them lengthwise. Slice them into strips, discarding the inner strip of seeds. Then very finely dice the cucumbers.

dicing cucumbers

Very finely dice the onions, garlic and red bell pepper. You can use a food processor, just don’t let the onions and bell pepper get mushy. I prefer to just do it by hand.

chopping peppers

Note: There are no green bell peppers shown in the pictures and they weren’t added to this particular batch, but they belong in it. Okay, now that that’s clear, let’s move on.

Place the diced vegetables in a large bowl along with the salt. Cover with water and let it sit for at least 6 hours or overnight.

(Ignore the fact that some of the cucumber peels are on. The second batch I made I peeled the cucumbers and the result was better.)

soaking veggies

Put the sugar, vinegar and spices in a large stock pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to a low boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

spiced brine

Drain the cucumber mixture in a colander, thoroughly rinse, and drain again.

Add the mixture to the stock pot. Return to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Discard the bay leaves.

Ladle the hot relish into the hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch of headspace. Wipe the rims of the jars clean and seal tightly with the lids. Process the jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

Ah, the masterpiece is done!

Best eaten at least a week later after the flavors have had time to meld and the vinegar mellows out a bit.
