Cucumber, Onion & Tomato Relish

Sorry it has been so long since I posted something, but you know how it is...time slips away from you.  Canning time is here, especially if you have a garden, so here is an easy relish recipe to help use an over abundance of produce.  More canning recipes coming soon!

You need:
3 cups peeled and chopped tomatoes
8 cups chopped onion
8 cups chopped cucumbers
1/4 cup pickling salt

Place all into a large bowl, cover and let sit overnight.  Drain very well and rinse.  Place mix into a large non-reactive pot (no aluminium) and add:

2 Tablespoons powdered mustard
4 Tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons Turmeric
2 cups white vinegar
1 cup apple cider vinegar
4 cups sugar

Stir to mix well and boil on med/low heat for 20 minutes.  Spoon into hot sterilized jars and seal.  To make sure your lids will seal properly, place them into a pot of boiling water, use tongs to grab a lid and place on top of your hot jar.  These do not require a hot water bath, but you could if you wanted to.
Made 11 cups of finished product.
After overnight salting.
Boiling away.
