I thought I would share a recipes today that is great for summer.
This is a relish recipe that is a keeper in my book. I have been making this for many years and each year I put at least 24 quarts of this on the shelf.
12 cups zucchini (shredded)
4 cups onions
2 bell peppers
2 1/2 C. cider vinegar
5 c. sugar
1tsp. dry mustard
3/4 t. nutmeg
3/4 t. corn starch
1/2 t. celery seed
1/2 t. black pepper
3/4 t. turmeric
2 T.mustard seed
Shred vegetables and place in a large pan, sprinkle with salt and cover with a dish towel. Allow to set for a few hours (3-4). Now squeeze liquid from veggies and discard. Place remaining ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the veggies and allow to come back up to a boil. Stirring will keep from sticking.
Have jars, caps and rings prepared and process by putting relish into jars with liquid, filling within one inch of top. Wipe top of jar with warm wet cloth. Place boiled cap on top and finger tighten ring into place. Place jar on a towel to cool, leaving space between jars. And wait for the ping!
*** I double or triple this recipe most of the time so I have no idea how much it makes in it single form.
****This relish is great used on hot dogs or in potato salad or we like it in pinto beans. I just use it instead of pickle relish.
