This recipe is from a friend's, daughter's mother-in-law (kinda like a 5th cousin twice removed and it is delicious! If you want it "HOT" just add a dozen finely chopped jalapenos. I do not water bath the jars but I am very careful with sterilizing and make sure the lids are sealed. I you feel better waterbathing them do it for 15 minutes.
This is great! Something different to do with an abundance of fresh garden zucchini. The pineapple-apricot combo is really a nice change of pace. Gift from a Dear 86 year old LADY! Easy too. Great gift idea.
This recipe came from my nextdoor neighbors great-grandmother who was a Blackfeet Indian and has been passed on down through the family. This is a recipe you'll have to try because I know you are going to love it. Note: The prep and cooking time may vary with your experience and equipment.
A nice addition to burgers or hot dogs. And very pretty for gift giving. You could substitute green bell peppers for the red ones, but it wouldn't be as attractive. You can also substitute zucchini for part of the cucumbers if desired.
I'll be honest-I never tried this relish when my grandma served it because I wasn't too keen on the look of it. This year I "inherited" 15 zucchini and have been told I'll be "inheriting" more. Out of desperation, I decided to make a batch of her relish. I reasoned that everyone else in the family loves it-I'll give it to them. Now that I've actually eaten it-I'm not sharing. This is not only a great way to use up a bumper crop of zucchini it's a great condiment!
This isn't exactly like a lasagna since there aren't any pasta noodles. Instead of the pasta, there are layers of zucchini and cucumber. I accidently peeled a cucumber the first time I tried making a zucchini lasagna and ended up with this which tasted pretty good to me. You can make the whole thing out of just zucchini if you want. I use Fat Free Organic Spaghetti Sauce with Mushrooms from Trader Joe's.
A south beach friendly way to use any extra your garden is giving, try to pick them when they are less than 3 inches in diameter. Use lo-fat sour cream for phase one, but it tastes good no diet at all!
