Zucchini Relish

I know I have be negligent in posting lately.  I've been busy with work and family and the garden and stuff... enough excuses yet???  Seriously though we have been busy in fact yesterday we made zucchini relish and canned it up.  Below is a picture and the recipe.

Zucchini Relish


10 cups chopped unpeeled zucchini
4 cups chopped onion
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 can (4 ounce size) chopped green chiles
3 tablespoons canning salt
3 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups vinegar
1 tablespoon ground turmeric
4 teaspoons celery seed
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


In a large container, combine zucchini, onion, pepper, chilies and salt; stir well. Chill overnight. Rinse thoroughly; drain.

In a large kettle, combine remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Add zucchini mixture; simmer for 10 minutes. Ladle hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Adjust lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water bath.

Serving suggestion: Mix into tuna or macaroni salad.


  1. Hi, I'm visiting from the Barn Hop. Your relish does look delicious! I made zucchini pickles one year and they were so good.


  2. Hi Vicki,
    Thank you!!! We're going to make zucchini salsa soon. We're going to have to try the zucchini pickles!! We have a ton of them.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Oh yum! Zucchini relish is so good, especially in a bowl of pinto beans with cornbread.

    Pop over to my blog every Friday for the Carnival of Home Preserving. Would love to see you there.
