zucchini relish

I have to say when I first heard of this I was unsure but my friend, Melissa brought me a jar last year and I LOVED IT!!! and i HATE relish. it was so yummy especially on hamburgers

This is all the veggies (zucchini, red pepper, green peppers and the onions shredded)
I used my kitchen aid shredded on all but the peppers and onions it wasnt working on those with the tough skin so i put then in my food processor.

you use 10 zucchini (i didnt use that many cuz a lot of mine were pretty big)
4 onions
1 red pepper
3 greed peppers
3/4 C. canning salt (i didnt use this and it was fine)
your suppose to let all the shredded veggies (juice and all) set  8-24 hours. i let mine sit an hour
Rinse and squeeze dry by the handfuls then add:
2 1/2 C vinegar
6 c. sugar (you can lessen if you want)
2 tsp mustard SEED
2 tsp turmeric

boil GENTLY for 30 minutes then pour into jars

you can either waterbath for 10 min or i used a pressure cooker 5lb for 5min

i got 11 pints :)
i also did some whole tomatoes as well

Zucchini Relish
10 grated zucchini
4 grated onions
3 large grated green peppers
1 large grated red pepper
3/4 cup canning salt
Stir well. Cover and let stand overnight or for at least 8 hours. Rinse well in cold water to remove salt. Then, one handful at a time, squeeze to remove water.
Mix together:
2 1/2 cup vinegar
6 cups sugar
2 tsp mustard seed
2 tsp turmeric
Add zucchini, then boil gently for 30 minutes. Pour into jars. Water bath for 10 minutes.

*great on burgers!*
