It’s garden time…have an abundance of those yummy zucchini? This is one of my favorite relish recipes…uses the zucchini … 3 medium ones at a time and I normally make several batches for our use and several batches to gift. Sure is a welcome treat on a Winter time sandwich or alongside an oven roasted pork loin.
2 Cups chopped zucchini
1 Cup chopped onion
½ Cup chopped green bell pepper
½ Cup chopped red bell pepper
2 TBSP salt
1 ¾ – 2 Cups white sugar
1 Cup cider vinegar
2 TSP celery seed
1 TSP mustard seed
Combine first 5 ingredients. Cover with cold water and let stand for 2 hours. Drain, rinse and leave in strainer while you wash and sterilize jars, rings and lids.
Combine rest of the ingredients in a large stainless steel pan, stir well, bring to a boil. Add vegetables and simmer about 10 minutes.
Pack hot relish into hot jars leaving ¼” headspace. Adjust 2 piece caps. Process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Makes about 4 half pints.
