Ma (Grandma's) Zucchini Relish from Aunt Maggie/Mom/Sis (March 7, 2001)

Hello everyone!

I don't know if you remember Ma (Grandma)'s Zucchini Relish recipe, but in case you are planning on growing zucchinis, this could come in handy:

Zucchini Relish

10 C zucchini, coarsely ground
4 onions
1 green pepper
1 red pepper

Grind all and mix with 1/2 C salt; let stand overnight.
Drain and rinse in cold water; drain again and rinse.


2 3/4 C vinegar
5 C sugar
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp tumeric
1 Tbsp dry mustard
1/2 C cornstarch

Mix and cook at a simmer for 30 minutes.

Makes 8 pints. Seal pints.

It's kind of fun to reminisce about family things, and exchange a recipe or two.

If you do plant zucchinis, I have 3 different recipes for zucchini bread (I cut them out of the paper, but I'm not sure if I've tried all of them). One of them includes crushed pineapple, which would be quite different. Let me know if you'd like those recipes, too.

Yesterday and today have been just beautiful and warm - in the 60s. My daffodils are looking like I'll have blooms on some of them in a few days. The crocuses are out, as are the grape hyacinths. However, some of the bulbs are later, as I didn't plant them until January.

It's time to get out there and prune my roses; however, that'll have to wait a bit, as I overdid and strained the ligaments behind my knees. I've been using a cane for the past week. Today I've been able to not use it most of the time and am much better. I should be able to get after the roses soon.

Hope you are all well and at least thinking about gardening. Spring is just about here.

Bye for now!


Aunt Maggie/Mom/Sis
