Zucchini Relish Recipe

Here is a recipe you can use today… if you’re struggling (like I am) with what do with all those zucchini’s in your garden.  It’s called Zucchini Relish and it’s one of my favorites.

Start by combining 2 cups chopped zucchini, 1 cup chopped onion, 1 cup chopped sweet peppers (I used green peppers because they were on sale).

Sprinkle with 2 Tablespoons of salt, cover with cold water and let sit for 2 hours.  Drain and rise thoroughly.


The combine 1 3/4 cups of sugar, 2 teaspoons of celery seed, 1 teaspoon of mustard seed (I typically buy my spices from the bulk spice section at Fred Meyer… do this and you will save a TON!) and 1 cup of cider vinegar in a large sauce-pot and simmer with the zucchini mixture for 10 minutes.

In the mean time fill your canner with water about 2/3rds full and bring to a full boil.  After the zucchini mixture has simmered for 10 minutes pack into hot canning jars leaving 1/4″ head space, remove air bubbles. Then simply adjust your two piece bands and process for 10 minutes in your canner.

Zucchini relish is delish!
