Canning Squash

Can you can squash in quart jars, if so how?

Many years ago our family canned pickles and relish made totally of squash. We chose recipes for bread and butter pickles using the open kettle method. This method is not recommended in todays society, but that is the way it was done years ago. The bread and butter pickles had onions, sugar, vinegar, and we didn't use the salt, and I don't remember what else.

For relish we also ground squash and other ingredients, like onions, peppers, green tomatoes, celery, and or, cabbage. We also open kettled this. I'm sure that it could be done using the water bath method.

This is a great way to use up squash when you get too much.

Good luck.
