{ 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 & Donna for the recipe.
