1/2 Photos of Grandmas Tasty Zucchini Relish
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!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Slice zucchini as thinly as possible (food processor is a big help to do this).
- 2Sprinkle with the salt.
- 3Let sit overnight.
- 4Wash and drain the zucchini.
- 5Put in a large pot, add onions to the zucchini and mix well.
- 6Add sugar and 6 cups vinegar.
- 7Cook on a medium-high heat, stirring often-It will easily scorch because of the sugar content.
- 8In the meantime, in a separate dish mix together the mustard seed, turmeric and flour well. Add the 2 tbsp of vinegar to make a runny paste-You may need to add more vinegar.
- 9Add mixture to pot and stir constantly.
- 10Continue to cook mixture until it thickens (approx. 1 - 1 1/2 hour).
- 11Scoop into sterilized jars and seal.
