This is my family's favorite relish recipe! It tastes wonderful on hot dogs, hamburgers, brats or added to thousand island dressing, etc. I keep the sugar to a minimum and do not add gluten as a thickening agent. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It is a great way to use up a ton of zucchini!!
Ingredients: I either grow my own organic food and spices or buy it, depending on my weather conditions. If you don't have access to organic food then I would suggest peeling it and if it is a root vegetable cutting a couple of inches off the top and bottom to minimize the absorption of pesticides into your body.
Add all the above into a large stainless steel or enamel cast iron pot plus your zucchini and onions you set aside and bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer for 30 minutes. You want a little liquid but not too much so it isn't runny when you use it.
Sterilize 8 - one pint jars and lids and then pack in the relish into the sterilized jars leaving a 1/2 inch head space from the top of the jar. Make sure the rim is clean and then put on the lid and screw down.
You want your canning pot ready with boiling water then place the jars in the rack and lower the rack and jars down into the pot. Make sure the top of your jars are covered by three inches of water. Bring to a full boil, cover and process for thirty minutes.
Remove the lid and let the jars sit for five minutes. Then using your canning tongs remove the jars to a towel on the counter so they aren't touching and let cool. After they are cool make sure each lid is depressed and doesn't pop up and down, if it does put it in the fridge and use up and enjoy!
