Zucchini Relish

This is a great recipe for those gardeners who grow a lot of zucchini. This relish has great flavor, is easy to make, and compliments anything you put it on. Add some red peppers for color and this can easily be a family favorite condiment in your house like it is in my house. This recipe comes from my husband's granny's kitchen and it is soooo good!

Zucchini Relish

5 cups zucchini squash
2 cups onion

Put both in food processor and chop very fine. Sprinkle squash and onion with 1/8 cup salt and let stand overnight. Next morning, rinse well and let drain.

Mix together:
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/8 cup vinegar
1/2 Tbsp dry mustard
1/2 Tbsp celery seed
1/2 Tbsp tumeric powder
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 large green pepper or red pepper, chopped fine in food processor.

Stir well into squash/onion mixture. Cook slowly for 2 hours. Pack and seal in pint jars. Process for 5 minutes in boiling water canner. Set aside to cool and let jars seal. Can be kept up to 2 years in dry cool place.
