I very much liked this relish. I did add 3 T. more cornstarch at the end of the cooking time and cooked 1 more minute to thicken it. I will keep this recipe for next years crop.

Just made this up with my monster zuccinni. I doubled the recipe with no problems. I canned 21 8oz canning jars with about 6oz. left over for tasting. It is really good and I think I will make some more as I have zuccinni coming out of my ears! I added a small chilli pepper and used red peppers instead of green. It looks very pretty as well as tastes great.

I added some red and yellow peppers to this for the color. It turned out great! I gave some away to daughter and son in law and he wanted the recipe soon as he tasted it so I passed it along. My mother has already used all hers and wants more LOL. I am making up another batch tonight with the last of the zucchini from our garden. Thanks so much!
