Sweet Relish

I really wanted to make some relish with my cucumbers this year, and started searching through old community cook books (Domain's Nothing But The Best, and More of The Best which are my regular go-tos, and St. Gerard's Roman Catholic Church Cook Book which is Jason's go-to. But then I remembered my sister-in-law, Jaime, who always makes good relish! She is a Prairie Girl too, born and raised in southern Manitoba, and I believe this recipe came from her mom. Thank you for passing on to me!! Some call this a hot dog relish, but we like it on anything. Tonight, we'll be having ours with BBQ Pork!

Prep Time: 30 Minutes / 24 Hours | Cook Time: 10 Minutes | Makes: about 4 Quarts

14-15 cucumbers
4 cups onions
1/4 of a red pepper
1/2 cup course salt
5 cups white sugar
4 cups vinegar

1 tsp turmeric
