Relishing Life... Indian-Style Cucumber Relish

Indian-Style Cucumber Relish 
Found at leenaeats

Makes 3 half pints

3 cups diced, peeled cucumber (4-6 medium pickling cucumbers)

1 cup finely diced onion

1 ½ tsp kosher salt

1 cup white vinegar

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 ½ tsp whole cumin seeds

1 tsp black mustard seeds

1 tsp yellow mustard seeds

1 tsp fenugreek leaves

Put cucumber and onion in a non-reactive bowl and sprinkle with the salt. Let sit for 4 hours or up to overnight, stirring occasionally.

Drain liquid from vegetables, rinse twice and drain completely.

Place sugar, spices, and vinegar in a stainless steel or enamel pan, and bring to a boil over high
heat. Add vegetables and return to a boil for 30 seconds.

Remove hot, sterilized jars and fill with vegetable and liquid, with ½ inch headspace at the top.

Clean the top of the jar, place lid on and process in a hot water bath—10 minutes half pints and 4 oz jelly jars, 15 minutes for pint jars.
