Chop cucumbers. Stem, seed, and chop peppers. You should have 2 quarts chopped cucumbers and 2 cups of each color of chopped peppers. Combine them with onion in a large mixing bowl; sprinkle the vegetables with turmeric. 4. Dissolve salt in 2 quarts cold water; pour over vegetables. Let stand for 3 to 4 hours. 5. Drain vegetables thoroughly. Cover them again with cold water and let stand another hour. Drain well. 6. tie the spices in a cheesecloth bag and put in a large preserving kettle with the vinegar and sugar. Heat to boiling, then pour over the vegetables. Cover and set aside in a cool place for several hours or overnight. 7. Slowly heat the vegetables and syrup to boiling, then pack relish into hot jars to within 1/4 inch of tops. Run a slim, non metal tool down along insides of jars to release any air bubbles. Add additional relish, if necessary, to bring to within 1/4 inch of tops. 8. Wipe tops and threads of the jars with a damp clean cloth. 9. Put on lids and screw bands as manufacturer directs. 10. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
