Wash, trim, and peel most of the skin off of the cucumbers. Cut and peel onions.
Place the cucumbers and onions through a grinder or a food processor. Add the pickling salt and stir well. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
Place the relish in a colander and let drain for 2-3 hours.
Once drained, transfer the relish into a large pot, add all remaining ingredients. Cook on medium heat until boiling. Let simmer for at least five minutes.
Make sure your jars are sterile and hot, ladle the hot relish into the jar. (Don’t add to a cold jar, this can cause the jar to explode) Quickly add the lid and ring.
Set the jars aside while they cool. Sealed jars will “pop” when cooling. If the jars don’t seal simply place the relish in the fridge.
