What is zucchini relish? I had never heard of anything besides pickle relish until last summer. My hubby’s relatives had made some and it was so wonderful I had to get the recipe. We recently finished up last year’s batch so it was time to make more.
For those who are interested in the recipe:
Phase 1: Grind each in food processor- 10c zucchini (unpeeled), 4 1/2 c onion, 3 large green peppers, & 2 large red peppers. Mix all together with 1c UNiodized salt and let it stand overnight. (I forgot about it and let it be stand 1 1/2 days)
Phase 2: Drain and wash until the water is clear and no longer salty. Drain well. In a large pot make the syrup: 2 1/2 c vinegar, 3 1/2 c sugar*, 1 tsp dry mustard, 2 tsp celery seed, & 2 tsp turmeric. Bring this to a boil Add the vegetables and boil for 15 minutes. Put in sterilized jars.**
*If you prefer your relish to be sweeter the original recipe does call for 5 cups of sugar.
** I find that the heat seals the jars on its own but you could can them if you want.
