Recipe by Judith N.

This yummy recipe was given to me by my Stepmom. It was always a hit on our summer table and goes great with hotdogs, hamburgers, roasts and just about anything. Prep/Cook times do not include letting the mixture stand overnight to season.

I was gifted with a large bag of zucchini & squash so came searching for a recipe to try to make a relish. I was lucky when I found this one! The relish is stellar!! I used a mixture of squash to equal 6 cups, added 2 grated carrots, and 4 cups of cabbage. After soaking the veggies overnight I discovered I was out of tumeric so I substituted sweet curry powder. The relish is wonderful! Sweet, sour, and so much flavor. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I will be using it all summer.
