Cucumber Relish

It might be a bit late in the season to be sharing this for those of you who grow their own cucumbers, but your own chutney and relish is always better than store bought.

The skins can be tough on home grown cucumbers but the flesh is so much more juicy than shop bought. This recipe requires them to be peeled anyway.

One thought on “Cucumber Relish

  1. Jolly interesting- and not complicated! I love cooking, and there is something just so rewarding about making preserves. My only problem is – we don’t eat much in the way of chutneys and relishes! Love your jar labels, by the way. Lxx
