I made a ton of this this Sumer when the garden was overflowing and now find it my go-to winter meal in a hurry. Served over pasta with ground beef or sausage and I have a tasty meal in 15 minutes. Tastes perfect as is. Easy to make. Wouldn't change a thing.

This was absolutely what the farmer ordered! Have cooked up 30 qts. I tweaked the recipe and added black pepper, and some chili powder for a little taste. My kids eat it right out of the jar, it is so good. The salt ratio is just fine... it help's tame the sweetness of the tomato puree.

I have been looking for a tomato/summer squash/onion recipe. I found this and I just would like to point out most recipes I have canned uses 1/2 teaspoon canning salt for one pint of produce and 1 teaspoon of canning salt for 1 quart of produce.

I have never tasted anything this bad before. It has way too much thyme. Way too much salt. Unless you LOVE thyme and salt, modify this recipe. I threw mine out. Start with 1/4 teaspoon of thyme (or less) and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Add some basil, and the Italian seasoning. Salt does not preserve food only heat and pressure do. <br/>Also I believe she meant 1/2 teaspoon of salt per quart. But please don't use that much. Try you recipe out, if you think it needs more of one or another then add it. If not, leave it alone.

This is great and I am not spending $2.79 per small can. <br/>I found that using 4.5 quarts of zucchini in measured batches; fills the jars just right after cooking. I omitted onions they can always be added during cooking. <br/>Zucchini and tomato with pepper gets great flavor, so I decided to dice a couple jalapeños into the last batch. Just a hunch but I expect it will be great..
