{ Sweet Zucchini Relish ~ The Recipe }

I made more of this incredibly yummy relish today.
I mean I had to, I only had 3 pints left in our food storage. 
This relish is so stinking Go-oD!
 I've had several people tell me that they don't like relish.  
But I being the amazing food preserver that I am, persuade them to try just a teensy tiny bit and guess what? 
They...are... hooked...
Yup, it IS that good.

It's seriously easy to make here is the recipe.

Zucchini Relish

12 cups grated zucchini
4 cups grated or chopped onion
¼ cup salt
3 red peppers shredded
1 green pepper shredded

***Mix & let sit in fridge overnight***

Next day rinse and drain.
In a big pot mix the cold vegetables with:
2 ½ cups white vinegar
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp celery seed
4 ½ cups sugar

Cook on med high heat for 30 minutes
Water bath for 10 minutes
Makes 6 pints

BBQ tomorrow night? 
Why yes, I think we will, this is so good on Hamburgers and Hotdogs!

My thanks to Nan for the fresh zucchini & Carol for the recipe.

  8. I love your recipe. It's just like what my mom made growing up. Wonderful! To let you know just how good, my husband is a lazy eater. Not a bad thing, but when preparing his dish he doesn't reach for all of the condiments available. Hot dogs? He often just settles on ketchup...unless he LOVES something he could care less. He goes for this relish every time. Even with leftovers and he has to get the actual jar out of the fridge, he goes the extra mile for this relish. We demolished the first jar in less then a week. It was that good. Way better then a store. Already made 12 jars, just made 7 more and I have more ingredients in the fridge for another batch. Thanks! :)

    1. Ellie,
      I'm not sure how many I used, I am actually getting ready to make more. We ran out! I do remember I had about 3 LARGE zucchinis and I sliced them in pieces small enough so I could use shred them in my salad shooter. :) I know it's not very helpful information but I hope it helps a little.
