Zucchini Relish

This year’s horrible weather meant no cucumbers. :o(  But we do have zucchini… So what do you do when life hands you zucchini? You make zucchini relish! It actually turned out really good and I was able to make 3 batches with one zucchini!

2 cups chopped zucchini

1 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1/2 cup chopped red pepper

2 tbsp pickling salt

1 3/4 cups sugar

2 tsp celery seed

1 tsp mustard seed

1 cup cider vinegar

Combine zucchini, onion, and peppers in large bowl. Sprinkle with salt. Cover with cold water. Let stand 2 hours.

Combine remaining ingredients in large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add vegetables. Simmer 10 minutes.

Pack hot relish into hot jars, leaving 1/4” headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust 2-piece caps. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before removing jars.
