REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Great spice combination.
Like the instructions.
Overnight in salt with rinsing works well.
Tried ingredients above and then changed it up.
For the second batch I used 1 teaspoon dried ground cyane for the pepper.
Organic Florida cane sugar. Cidar vinagar. Droped the canned chillies and onions and used six cups sliced baby zucchini and six cups sliced colored sweet peppers.
And for a third batch six cups sliced young vidalia onions and the tender onion greens and 6 cups colored sweet peppers.

Yummie. Tastes like a bread and butter sweat pickles. Love the red yellow and orange pepper colors mixed with the siced pale green zucchini slices with the dark green skin.

This is a fantastic recipe, this is our second year and we're making a triple batch. Hard to believe that zucchini can taste so good. It has a sweet zesty flavor that is awesome with tuna. This is a family favorite for sure. Great for gift baskets since it is much more fun to give jars of relish away than giant sized zucchinis!

This recipe was great & really easy easy to follow. The relish has a great flavour. One thing I did was add thickening agent. (IE flour and water)

Simple and good!

I made Zucchini Relish for the first time this week. I used this recipe and it was perfect. I can see why it is called "prize winning"- the flavor is fantastic! I'm never going back to cucumber relish after tasting this marvelous concoction.
