Having never made home made relish before let alone zucchini relish, I am totally excited to say that this was a total success! It is very, very tasty!
I had a devil of a time finding Turmeric in my area, but finally found some. I didn't use as much sugar as the recipe called for and I am glad I didn't because it came out perfectly. It would have been way to sweet with all three cups. I used 1 cup of Splenda brand sweetener and 1 1/4 cups regular sugar. Everything else stayed the same. I also didn't make it to 8 jars, I did manage to get a beautiful five jars. Oh, and under the advise of my sister, who is sort of a canning guru, I water bathed it for six minutes just as a precaution.
Anyone wanting to dive into canning and try a great relish recipe should definitely try this one. Very easy and great flavor. I doubt I will ever use store bought relish again.
Thank you so much for this recipe!!!
