I converted the original by changing out cucumbers and onions for diced jalapeno, serrano, and ancho chili peppers. The result is so nice!

Here’s the original recipe:
Sweet Cucumber Relish
6 large cucumbers
4 large onions
2 large bell peppers, some red
Add 2 t. salt & let stand 3-4 hrs or overnight. Drain.
Make a syrup of 2 c. vinegar
3 1/2 c. sugar
1 t. mustard
1/2 t. turmeric
1 t. celery seed
Bring to boil. Add ground cucumbers mixture. Cook 30 min. Put in jars & seal.

My version:
5 pounds mostly deseeded peppers; blend of jalapeno, serrano, and ancho. I used a handful of the serrano turned red and a pound of the ancho chilies. The rest were jalapeno. I changed the 3 /12 c. of sugar to 4 cups of brown sugar. Ran soaked peppers through the blender to get the size down. Cooked down in pan on the stove for 30 minutes. Put into hot clean pint jars with hot sterile lids and rings. Water bath process pints for 20 minutes. Made 4 dense pints.

Seems Like I Did It This Away was published in the early 1980’s and I was lucky enough to receive a copy from a cousin in 1983. Over the years I’ve used many recipes out of it and always enjoy perusing its pages for old things to make new.

This is my personal food blog with some very old things thrown in for spice.

Bacon fat! Yes, bacon fat and lard are important ingredients along this journey.
