Squash Relish.....This stuff is AWESOME!!! WAY too good not to share.



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.

    You can substitute any pepper you like or omit it.I think you will still like it. ;)

    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! ;)

    My pleasure.Some things are too good not to share. ;)

    Food processor with the grating plate in place. ;)

    thanks, I am not much of a canner, but my cousin is and she has plenty of squash coming in. I will pass this recipe to her in exchange for half the jars canned :laugh: I can't wait to taste this.
