    Too much zucchini? Try this wonderful relish and enjoy your zucchini year round. It is really good on hotdogs or hamburgers. The yield is a guess, as I always at least double this recipe.

      This was a great recipe! We just made this the other week and the husband can't keep his hands out of the jar. I am not one for food dyes, but we added green coloring to the relish to turn it bright green. I really like the freakish green color. We hand shredded a second batch and it gave us longer strands of zucchini in the relish. I don't believe I will do that again because it took extra time and I really like the smaller pieces. There was a really good crunch that was in the relish. I just had some today on a cheeseburger - amazing! We ended up canning this in small jelly jars (4 oz jars) to not waste the product. Thanks for a keeper! I will be using this receipe over and over again!

      Second year making this! Wonderful way to use up those giant zucchini. When paired with homemade ketchup and mustard this makes a fun and tasty Christmas present.

      Very Tasty! I tripled the recipe since I had three large zucchini. My sweet peppers weren't red yet so I added 2 jalapenos that were, along with my green peppers. I cut the sugar back to 2 cups per batch and thought it was plenty sweet at that level. Meant to add the nutmeg I had seen in other versions but forgot - still good anyway!! My yield for the triple batch was 10.5 pints.
