Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I have enjoyed relish all my life. But, I don't think I have ever had one with zucchini in it so this recipe intrigued me. I loved it! The flavors are tasty and it really gave my hot dog an extra zing. I can't wait to try it on beans and vegetables.
Grind 10 cups of Zucchini and place in large pot (with a lid) add the salt and garlic salt, cover with cold water and soak overnight. (I add lots of ice cubes and place pot in a cool place. If not, put it in the fridge!)
The following morning, drain and rinse well in a large colander. Return to pot and add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Seal in jars while the relish is very hot.
Place jars in canning pot and cover with water. Boil the submerged jars for at least 15-20 minutes to make sure seals are airtight. Remove jars from canning pot with tongs and place on a towel in your sink until they cool (this prevents jars from cracking).
After opening a jar of relish, store opened jars in the fridge!
