For me, canning season always begins with zucchini relish, never heard of it? I hadn't either but in my early gardening years, I always planted more than we could use and as every one knows, you can never get rid of zucchini but this recipe will make you want to keep all the zucchini for yourself and relish, of course!
4 c. shredded zucchini
3 c. shredded carrots
4 1/2 c. chopped onions
1 1/2 c. chopped red or green peppers
1/4 c. salt
2 1/4 c. vinegar
3/4 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. celery seed
3/4 t. dry mustard
In a large kettle combine all ingredients well and cook for 30 min. or till veggies are tender. Process in hot water bath as directed for 20 min. Makes 4-5 pints.
If you like cucumber relish, you will love this! Great on burgers and dogs, this is a staple in my fridge and one of two reasons why I grow zucchini, chocolate zucchini bread being the other! If you must share your zucchini, make it into relish then give it away, you'll be surprised at how many grow their own next year!
