This is real yummy relish. The recipe came from a zucchini cookbook I borrowed from the Library.

I have the cook book that this recipe came from, and I've been making this relish for 20+ years. It's my favorite, and my daughter's favorite. I have modified it a little bit (after my first batch so many years ago) ~ I always add a heaping tablespoon of mustard seeds to the spices in this recipe. I also use a food grinder to prepare my veggies - which is a huge time saver.
