Zucchini Relish

Recipe from: Louise Austin

This recipe is from my aunt, Louise Austin, from the cookbook, What's Cooking with FLO?, favorite bayou country recipes of FLO (For Ladies Only) from the First Baptist Church in Napoleonville, Louisiana published in 1990.

Mix together:

10 cups chopped zucchini
2 cups chopped onion
2 tablespoons salt
1 to 2 large jars pimentos, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped

Use your food processor for these vegetables. Let them stand overnight. Drain. Add cold water and drain again—well.

Add:

2½ cups vinegar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
6 cups sugar
1 tablespoon celery seed
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon tumeric
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 tablespoons pickling spices, tied in cheesecloth

Boil for 25 minutes, stirring often. Pack in hot clean jars and seal tightly.
