Zucchini Salsa, Canned

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Bergy

This recipe is from a friend's, daughter's mother-in-law (kinda like a 5th cousin twice removed and it is delicious! If you want it "HOT" just add a dozen finely chopped jalapenos. I do not water bath the jars but I am very careful with sterilizing and make sure the lids are sealed. I you feel better waterbathing them do it for 15 minutes.

What an awesome way to use up my zucchini (there always seems to be too much). This recipe surprised my friends and family who couldn't believe there was more zucchini than tomato in it. We found it was plenty hot with only 5 jalepenos.
