How To Make squash relish

  • 4
    Add vegetables and bring to a boil. Pour in hot jars and seal. Water bathe for 15 minutes. I put mine in jelly jars because I eat a jar all by myself. This recipe should make about 6 pint jars. Sometimes I have a bit that will not fit into the jars... it does not go to waste. Enjoy
