Zucchini Relish

Zucchini Relish

A super-awesome relish recipe to make with all of that zucchini you still have after making bread. The recipe comes from Old World Garden Farms.


  • 10 cups zucchini
  • 3 cups onions
  • 4 red bell peppers
  • 5 tablespoons salt
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 3 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed


  • Large Bowl
  • Large Pot
  • Stirring Spoon
  • Water bath canner
  • Canning Utensils
  • 5 pint mason jars with lids


  • Grate zucchini, onions and peppers in a food processor. Place in a large bowl and add salt. Mix well. Cover and let stand at room temperature 8-10 hours.

  • Rinse thoroughly in a large strainer and drain well. Use the back of the spoon to push mixture against strainer to release as much water as you can.
  • Place zucchini mixture in a large stockpot and add remaining ingredients.
  • Mix well and bring to a boil. Keep at a low boil for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Place in sterilized pint jars and process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes (adjust for altitude).
