“This relish is a good way to use up some of that over-abundant zucchini you have in your garden. It can be used with meat loaf, stew, sliced meats, and even hot dogs. We serve it at dinner and cookouts. It is a favorite with our guests.” –Knoll Farm Country Inn, Waitsfield, Vermont

1/3 cup pickling salt
12 cups coarsely grated zucchini
2 green peppers, coarsely grated
2 sweet red peppers, chopped
4 cups coarsely grated onions
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups vinegar
4-1/2 cups sugar

In a large enamel or stainless steel pan, mix pickling salt into vegetables. Let stand overnight. Drain, rinse with cold water, and return to pan. Mix together rest of ingredients and add to vegetables. Boil 20 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars. Seal and process for 20 minutes; start counting the processing time when the water starts to boil.
