Cucumber Relish


6 medium-sized cucumbers peeled and sliced
4 onions halved and sliced

Put in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Cover with a tea towel and allow to stand for 2 hours. Drain the liquid out in a colander and wash the salt out with cold water.

Put well washed bottles into oven at 100C to heat. Pour boiling water into the lids.

½ teaspoon ginger
500 grams brown sugar
1 ¼ cups white vinegar
½ teaspoon celery seed
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
½ teaspoon Chinese 5 spice

Mix all ingredients in a large saucepan. Boil for 8 minutes. Fill the hot jars with the cucumber and onion mixture using a slotted spoon. When full pour in the liquid to overflowing, seal with the lids. Wash the bottles off with hot water.

This quantity made up one very large jar and one jam jar. It would probably make 3 normal size jam jars.
