READY IN: 25hrs
YIELD: 9 pints




  • Slice zucchini as thinly as possible (food processor is a big help to do this).
  • Sprinkle with the salt.
  • Let sit overnight.
  • Wash and drain the zucchini.
  • Put in a large pot, add onions to the zucchini and mix well.
  • Add sugar and 6 cups vinegar.
  • Cook on a medium-high heat, stirring often-It will easily scorch because of the sugar content.
  • In the meantime, in a separate dish mix together the mustard seed, turmeric and flour well. Add the 2 tbsp of vinegar to make a runny paste-You may need to add more vinegar.
  • Add mixture to pot and stir constantly.
  • Continue to cook mixture until it thickens (approx. 1 - 1 1/2 hour).
  • Scoop into sterilized jars and seal.
