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.

My family doesn't care for red peppers so I used a combination of shredded and minced carrots instead. Replaced sugar with 2c Splenda and did end up doubling the cornstarch mixture to thicken. Made approx. 3 pints. Absolutely delicious! Will double and reuse in the future!

This is delicious-people keep asking me for more relish (or the recipe)! I have had so many requests that I used cucumbers instead of the zucchini (I found myself with 30 pounds of cucumbers) and it is just as delicious! I also added jalapeno peppers to the relish upon the request of a few friends who love spicy foods! This will be a wonderful addition to my homemade gift baskets at Christmas time!

Wow I must say I am very impressed! Another great way to use up all those zucchini and peppers for those of us with gardens. I added one fresh jalapeno for zing and used one green and one orange pepper for color. Thank you for a keeper at our house!

Great relish! I used one large zucchini, one large yellow squash, and two small yellow squash. Otherwise, I followed the instructions as written. I ended up with 3 pints of relish. This is a great way to use up and preserve extras from the garden! Thanks!

Great way to use those extra zucchini and pepper. I used red and green peppers in mind. HE even uses this in his tossed salads. This makes great christmas gifts. Great flavor .

What an awesome way to use up zucchini. This was very similar to a recipe my niece gave me, except there was 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg in hers, so I added that to this one and also used five cups of frozen zucchini instead of the 3 lbs of fresh, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
