Sweet Jalapeno Pickle Relish


1 1/2 quarts jalapenos, finely chopped
1 quart cucumber, finely chopped
2 large onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons salt
5 1/4 cups sugar
3 cups cider vinegar
4 teaspoons pickling spice

Combine jalapenos, cucumbers, onion and the 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of salt in a large glass or ceramic bowl; cover with cold water and let stand for 2 hours. Drain thoroughly, pressing on the vegetable to remove excess liquid. Combine the sugar and vinegar in a large pot; tie the pickling spices in cheesecloth and add to the liquid. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove spice bag. Pack into hot jars and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.
