Easy Zucchini Relish

Ingredients

  • 12 cups shredded zucchini

  • 4 cups chopped onion

  • 5 tablespoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard

  • 1 ½ teaspoons celery seed

  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 ½ cups apple cider vinegar

  • 3-4 cups white sugar (depending on desired sweetness)

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

  • 14 half pint canning jars with lids and rings

Method

  1. Toss zucchini and onion with salt in a large bowl. Refrigerate overnight to drain. Rinse vegetables with cold water and drain well.

  2. Mix dry mustard, celery seed, nutmeg, and black pepper in a bowl.

  3. Heat vinegar, sugar, spice mix, zucchini mixture, and red bell pepper in a large pot over medium heat. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.

  4. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack the vegetables into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings.

  5. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then carefully lower the jars into the pot using a holder. Leave a 2 inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary until the water level is at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a full boil, cover the pot, and process for 25 minutes.

  6. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all)
