So you have a bumper crop of Zucchini Squash this year? Or your friends had a bumper crop. Or they are just so darned cheap right now.

You might enjoy making this tasty Zucchini Relish.  It is relatively easy to make and it will be a great treat when you use it as a condiment later.

10         cups             Zucchini, chopped
4            cups            Sweet Onion, chopped
4            medium       Green Peppers, chopped
2            medium       Hot Peppers, chopped
5            tbs.             Salt
2            jars             Pimentos, small
4            cups           Sugar
3            cups           Vinegar
1            tsp.            Nutmeg
1            tsp.            Celery Seed
1            tsp.            Pepper
1            tsp.            Turmeric

1.       Using your blender, combine the Zucchini, Onion and Hot Peppers, and rough grind (or finely chop with a knife).
2.       Remove the mixture and place into a container with the Salt, and set aside.
3.       Place the Green Peppers and Pimentos into the Blender and rough grind together (or finely chop with a knife).
4.       Mix the Sugar, Vinegar, Pepper, Nutmeg, Celery Seed and Turmeric together and then place into a Pot.
5.       Add the other mixed ingredients and bring to a Boil for 25-30 minutes.
6.       Place the Relish into sterilized Jars and seal the jars.
7.       Store in a Cool, Dry place.
