Too much summer squash!! I am sure you could can these in the traditional way, but I don't know how to do that and this is so easy. I've frozen the whole mix in plastic storage bags, too, with great results. I love these with almost anything...best of all in the middle of winter!!! Kids also eat this up--at one of my daughter's birthday parties, it was the first snack to go. My dad gave me the recipe, so I have no idea where it's from...

Excellent! I have NEVER pickled anything in my life, but I really wanted to try it and this was an excellent recipe to do it with. The only thing was I didnt know how to cut the red bell pepper so I just cut it into small strips and I cut the onion in half and sliced in (so I have half sliced onion slices) and that worked out really well. I put it all into a quart size jar and I have been munching on it ever since. I am definitely going to make another batch very very soon! Thanks for the recipe!
