Zucchini Relish

Posted on: August 31st, 2009 by Botanical Interests 36 Comments

I HAVE to share with you my wife’s recipe which I personally LOVE! If you like the flavor of vinegar AND want to get rid of your massive quantities of zucchini, give this a shot:

10 cups zucchini, 4 cups onion, 5 tablespoons salt

Grate (food processor) the above ingredients and let stand overnight. Drain and rinse in the morning. Put in large pan and add:

6 cups of sugar, 2 1/4 cups cider vinegar, 1tsp each of Nutmeg, dry mustard, tumeric, and corn starch, 2 tsp celery seed, 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 red and 2 green peppers finely chopped.

Cook for 30 minutes. Seal hot relish in sterile jars. Follow proper sterile canning methods (see Kerr or Ball website for instructions).
