I have made this before and it's really good. You can use the gigantic zucchini for this.
Meanwhile, sterilize canning jars, lids and screw bands according to manufacturer's directions. Ladle hot relish through funnel into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Cover with lids; screw on bands. Process jars in large pot of simmering water for 15 minutes; jars should be covered by 1 inch of water. Remove jars to rack and cool. Test seals. Store in cool, dark place at least 2 weeks before using.
Yields: 7 half pints.

Does anyone have a good recipe for relish, using zucchini or tomatoes (like chow chow or similar)?

Hi, I have a zucchini relish recipe that my family loves. I have changed it some to our taste.
12 c. zucchini-shredded
4. onions-shredded (we leave these out due to hubby's allergies)
Mix and let set overnight. rinse with cold water and drain well.
2 1/2 C. cider vinegar
6 C. sugar
1 red bell pepper (chopped)
1 yellow bell pepper (chopped)
1 T. dry mustard
1 T. cornstarch
3/4 t. tumeric.
I use stevia instead of sugar as we have changed out diet. It is great either way. ( 1 T of stevia clear for each cup of sugar. ) I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. Blessings to you!
Yields about 8 pints using sugar and no onions.

Kathy I also found this recipe that sounds so easy.

3 c sugar

1 Tbsp celery seed
1/2 tsp dry mustard
2 1/2 c vinegar
Dice vegetables and mix with salt. Let stand at least 1 hour
Drain well ... squeeze out juice
Mix vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, celery seed, and dry mustard in a large pot and bring to a boil.
Add vegetables and bring to a boil.
Pour in hot jars and seal. Water bathe for 15 minutes. I put mine in jelly jars because I eat a jar all by myself. This recipe should make about 6 pint jars. Sometimes I have a bit that will not fit into the jars... it does not go to waste.
