Lazy Girl’s Pickle Relish

Lazy Girl’s pickle relish on a grass-fed cheeseburger.

Quick Pickle Relish
1 ½ cups finely diced pickling cucumber
¾ cup finely diced onion
¾ cup finely diced bell pepper
1 tablespoon pickling salt
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. dry mustard

Mix diced vegetables with canning salt and set on a clean non-terry towel or a double thickness of paper towel in a colander.  Cover with another towel or double-thick paper towel and weigh down with an empty canning jar or other medium weight.  Let the vegetables drain for 1-2 hours, then squeeze vigorously to remove extra moisture.
Place the drained vegetables in a small saucepan with the sugar, vinegar, and spices over medium-high heat.  When the mixture begins to bubble, turn the heat to low, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.  Turn off the heat and leave the pan covered for another 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to marry.  Transfer the relish to a clean dish and cool completely before serving.
