This is a sweet relish that is made from all the zucchini that people give you during the summer. I have been making this for a good many years. Once you make your own relish, you will never want to buy it. It calls for chopped veggies and I do chop them first, but then put them in the food processor for a couple of seconds. You do not want it mush, but I like it a tad finer than I can chop.
