Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

8-cups shredded yellow squash
2-cups shredded zucchini squash
4 large onions diced
5 medium bell peppers diced
1 4oz jar of diced pimentos

Mix yellow squash,zucchini and onions together with 2 tablespoons of canning salt and let sit overnite.Drain liquid off squash/onion mixture.

In a large,thick bottomed stock pot that is coated,enameled etc.Do not use bare metal pots,the vinegar will react and turn cloudy.
Pour in...
2.5 cups white distilled vinegar
5 cups sugar
1 Tablespoon corn starch
1 Tablespoon Tumeric
1 teaspoon dry ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Heat mixture to a simmer,add veggies,return to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes,stirring often.
Fill sterilized canning jars to within 1/2 inch of top,place heated lids on jars,place rings on jars and tighten.Place filled jars in a waterbath of boiling water covered by at least 1 inch.Process pints for 10 minutes(Quarts 15 minutes),remove,let cool on racks.ENJOY!!! :)

    I will have to find something to replace the bell pepper, or just leave it out, but your recipe goes right into my cook book. Thanks! The overnight dry brine is a really good move.

    I knew it was only a matter of time before you would start posting pics from the stuff out of your garden....this stuff looks yummy! Did you shred in food processor - or use a grater? I often pick up a b-load of squash and make mega casserole amounts to freeze. You are one cooking king! ;)
