Zucchini Relish

I got this recipe from a girl at work too! It's a great way to use up zucchini!! It's also one of the best relishes I've ever had! Tastes like sweet pickle relish, I love it on smoked brats with banana peppers too! You can eat it like you would sweet pickle relish. If you didn't tell people it was zucchini, they would never know!! Yum!! I halved the recipe the first time I made it and put in jelly jars since I'm the only one who likes sweet pickle relish.....

Zucchini Relish

10 cups Zucchini, chopped or  minced
4 cups onion, chopped or minced
1 green pepper, chopped or minced
1 Red pepper, chopped or minced
5 Tablespoons salt

I minced all the above in my food processor, but you could just chop finely (depends on how chunky you like your relish). Put in large container and stir all together. Let it sit overnight. The next morning wash with cold water and drain. Place in large cooking pot.

Add the following:
4 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups  Vinegar
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon tumerac (I used curry powder because I didn't have tumerac-still good)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons celery seed
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Let cook 30 minutes. Add to clean, sterlized jars, and place in water bath for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
